State wins grant for fingerprint computer system

December 21, 1990

Maryland has won a federal grant, worth an estimated $1.3 million over the next three years, to develop a new computer system for fingerprinting criminal suspects.

The computer is expected to replace the cumbersome ink-and-paper method of fingerprinting suspects and produce clearer fingerprints. It will automatically verify the suspect's criminal history and search for any outstanding warrants against the suspect or any connections the fingerprints may have with unsolved crimes.
