  • Fingerprints, R u in the system if you've been fingerprinted with AFIS w/ no crime?

    A co-worker of mine was bragging how no one has his finger prints on file. He said he could go and commit a crime if he wanted to and they wouldn't be able to match up his finger prints because he has NEVER been finger printed.

    I have been fingerprinted a few times while testing for law enforcement. A few times on paper w/ ink and a couple of times on the AFIS electronic way. Curious to know if people who are or have been fingerprinted stay in the system although they didn't commit a crime. Basically do they keep a record of everyone who has been finger printed and that's how they build their data base, or do they just save the info if you've been convicted of a crime or have been arrested? Just food for thought. Thanks

    Yup. You're in the system. The only time they don't go in is when they're taken on paper for "elimination" purposes. Those are usually disposed of.(That was the policy of my Dept. I can't guarantee others) Any other time you're fingerprinted for official reasons, military, job application, gun permit etc., you go in the system, Federal,State and local. They'll stay in even if you die. There is one exception. If you are arrested, fingerprinted and later acquitted, your lawyer can request that they be removed from the system. Most don't bother.

          AFIS -no crime

          Good assumption. In all likelyhood your prints are on file, and can be accessed by AFIS. Shouldn't be a concern to you though, unless you plan a life of crime. Seriously, if you've applied to the Armed Forces, almost any Civil Service position at any level, your prints will be on file. Public education at all levels often requires an applicant be fingerprinted. Many private sector firms also require it for various reasons. If you worked for a firm doing any kind of defense work, and depending upon the area/level of employment, fingerprinting could be a requirement.
