Dorset Police Fingerprinting Trial Could Help Catch Criminals Quicker

Police working in Shaftesbury and North Dorset will be amongst the first in the country to trial new fingerprinting technology.

Ryan Howell explains how the ability to send prints to the police database directly from the crime scene could help catch thieves during a spate of robberies. That would increase the chance of reuniting theft victims with their stolen goods.
