Hamilton Police Service using new biometrics collection system

September 7, 2012 - 

The Hamilton Police Service in Ontario, Canada will alter the way it collects fingerprint and DNA samples from convicts.

The previous process involved transferring biometric samples to the central police station. Now, court branch officers instead collect biometric samples at the courthouse itself.

The new biometric data collection system, which has saved at least US$65,000, was first introduced last June.

Other than being cost-efficient, what do you think are the other benefits from this new biometric data gathering system?
