News reports “researchers at the University of Sheffield in England have developed a technique to compress fingerprints lifted from a crime scene so they can be transmitted to a fingerprint bureau in a fraction of the normal four to 20 minutes.Professor Nigel Alinson said authorities would now be able to transmit a lift within 30-60 seconds at a news conference held by the British Association Festival of Science. Instead of visiting several crime scenes and waiting until the end of the day to get the prints to a bureau, crime scene examiners will now be able to use a laptop with a wireless card and a small scanner to send them via mobile phone networks”.
