Iowa City Police Explore Digital Fingerprinting

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- The Iowa City Police Department wants to upgrade its fingerprinting system from an ink and card method to electronic scanning.
  
The department is applying for federal grant money that would be used to buy a fingerprinting scanner. Police Chief Sam Hargadine says it will improve efficiency and accuracy.
  
The department has been moving toward the digitalization of its operations. It includes electronic filing for most reports and plans to equip officers with body-mounted digital video cameras.
  
The grant for more than $26,000 is being submitted jointly with the Johnson County Sheriff's Office. The department would use its half for the scanner.
  
The county uses a digital fingerprinting system at the jail and the University of Iowa uses a scanner.
