Fingerprint Examination Department

Central Fingerprint Register Unit

Central Fingerprint Register Unit deals with collection of tenprint cards (fingerprints and palmprints) in paper form, which contain data of persons suspected of committing an indictable offence as well as juveniles who committed crime.

The experts of Central Fingerprint Register Unit maintain the collection and make it available to authorised subjects. Employees of this Unit are tasked with the introduction of data from nationwide-gathered tenprint cards to AFIS. This allows for a rapid identification of persons and more efficient utilisation of the collection.
