Florida City Considers Fingerprint Scanners in Police Cruisers

December 19, 2007

WINTER PARK, FL – The city of Winter Park is considering putting 56 portable digital fingerprint scanners into patrol cars, according to the Web site The scanners would eliminate identity confusion by offering a complete record on the spot.

Police said a person’s fingerprint would also virtually eliminate the possibility that officers would arrest the wrong person.

Winter Park’s City Commission will vote on the issue. If the city OKs the purchase of the machines, the portable scanners would be put into place as soon as they arrived in Winter Park, according to Local 6.
