Salisbury, MA – The Salisbury Police Department received a $22,150 grant on April 6, 2015. The grant was endowed by the Edward J. Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant for the purpose of purchasing a Live Scan Fingerprint Machine.
Live Scan fingerprinting has modernized the science of taking fingerprints and practically eliminates human error from the equation. Rather than rolling the finger through ink and making an imprint on paper, the Live Scan Fingerprint Machine allows an officer to digitally take a palm or fingerprint impression. This digital image can then be transmitted electronically to other law enforcement agencies.
At the community level, almost all states are mandating the taking of fingerprints for all applicants in a position of contact with vulnerable members of society such as the elderly, children, the mentally ill and the physically disabled. As communities are invested in protecting these groups, Live Scan fingerprinting will allow for the quick and cost effective background checks of people coming into contact with the protected element of our society.
The Salisbury Police Department would like to thank the Massachusetts Executive Office of Public Safety and Security for this award.
