Mobile Fingerprint Scanner Helps Police Crack Down on Crime
MESA, A.Z.--A mobile fingerprint scanner that some say could go too far is helping crack down on crime in one Arizona town.
It only takes cops in Mesa a few seconds to scan a suspect's fingers then enter them into a database. They know right away if a suspect is who he says he is.
The ACLU has privacy concerns.
CMPD tested the mobile fingerprint devices in 2010. We are told the department never fully implemented them.
