Kazakhstan Police are solving crimes in ‘hot pursuit’ using PAPILLON AFIS
Akmola Region. About 300 criminals were identified by latent finger and palm prints in the first half of 2020.
PAPILLON AFIS allows crime-scene technicians to check latent finger and palm prints lifted during examination of scenes of crimes, and to identify persons possibly involved in the commission of crimes in one day on duty.
In one of the police stations, a call was received that an unidentified corpse of a man was lying on the street. To clarify the circumstances, police officers went to the scene of the incident. The unknown dead had no documents, no cell phone. To establish his identity, the police used the PAPILLON AFIS database. As a result, the police identified the unknown dead in a few seconds.
