Sheriff's Office Announces New MorphoTrak LiveScan Fingerprint Machine
The Arkansas State Police has provided the Howard County Sheriff's Office with a MorphoTrak LiveScan fingerprint machine. Their goal is for every law enforcement agency to have the LiveScan fingerprint machine. When an individual is fingerprinted his/her fingerprints are electronically submitted to AFIS (Automated Fingerprint Identification System) at the Arkansas State Police Headquarters which is a 24/7 operation. The fingerprints are also electronically submitted to the FBI. Individuals on America's Most Wanted have been identified several times within minutes by using this system.
