IAFIS processes 7,000 prints Day 1

The FBI's Criminal Justice Information System recently launched the Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System at its Clarksburg, W.Va., facility.

IAFIS has interfaces with the National Instant Criminal Background Check System for firearms and National Crime Information Center 2000 network. IAFIS program manager James J. Jasinski said the integration, headed by Lockheed Martin Corp. of Bethesda, Md., ran smoothly as the system processed more than 7,000 fingerprint searches the first day.

The $640 million fingerprinting system consists of the Image Transmission Network, Automated Fingerprint Identification System and Interstate Identification Index.

FBI and state and local law enforcement officers can search fingerprints and criminal histories from federal, state and local records.
