HOME / DIGITAL FINGERPRINTING / ABOUT FINGERPRINTING
The need for greater security has pushed governments and government agencies to build a database of individuals which is 100% accurate and error free and at the same time it can also be used for general purpose applications such as quick identification. Currently, most of the agencies use name-based database for a variety of objectives. This includes cross border travel (criminal record check), background check by employers and assessing restricted areas.
However, at times, this method may not provide a conclusive way of confirming a person’s identity. This is where fingerprinting comes in handy. As mentioned above, this type of verification guarantees quick identification and retrieval of data. Mentioned below are some of the advantages of fingerprinting over traditional name-based record check.
It is next to impossible to forge, fake, steal or exploit your identity.
Name based record check / identification may sometimes throw up errors. It is especially true if individuals have same name and date of birth or birth place.
Fingerprinting offers a quick way to cross border, enter restricted airport /public areas and provides a great way to identify yourself.
Fingerprinting is not just about criminal records. It is becoming a de facto way of preserving records (both criminal and general). It is expected with the general availability of this service and RCMP’s growing ability to respond to screening requests this will become a broadly accepted method of identity assurance throughout Canada. In short, it takes care of identification and security needs of government agencies and corporations.
Interestingly, fingerprint search of the National Repository of Criminal Records is conducted by one of the integral wings of RCMP. However, fingerprints submitted to CCRTIS for criminal record checks are only used to confirm your identity, and they are not added to the database for subsequent searches of various kinds.
Digital fingerprints are submitted to RCMP via electronic devices and the process is fast and most reliable. We provide fingerprinting service in most of the provinces and for a bouquet of purposes.
