UK police to scan the fingerprints of anyone unable to present identification

Posted on Tuesday, 13th February 2018 @ 01:23 PM by Text Size A | A | A

There are about 4,200,000 surveillance cameras in United Kingdom. According to a feature in Wired UK, police want to take an even closer look.

The West Yorkshire Police Service is currently testing a mobile fingerprint scanning system that’s connected to databases containing the fingerprints of 12 million immigrants and criminals. 250 mobile fingerprint scanners have been issued to officers in the north eastern English city and will be used, as part of a pilot program, to help identify individuals who refuse to or are unable to tell the police who they are or are. The Yorkshire Police Service says that the system would most likely only ever be used on suspects at the scene of a crime, those who are found to have no identification papers or anyone found dead or unconscious. In 2012, for example, the London Metropolitan Police were blasted by the country’s highest court for keeping surveillance footage of citizens who had committed they had charged with no crimes. Six years on, there’s little evidence that this practice has come to an end. More than this, being an immigrant is not a crime. That the device, in addition to sifting through criminal fingerprints, also looks at the fingerprints of individuals who have come to the UK and have committed no crimes, dances into some pretty dark territory.
