COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — With a quick imprint of a suspect’s two fingers on a handheld device, Columbus police can get instant access to the person’s identity without making a trip to the booking office.

The department announced this week it is testing 40 RapID wireless units it purchased recently for about $3,000 each using a federal Homeland Security grant.

Police say the new technology saves time by eliminating a trip to a downtown booking station. It typically would be used to check the identity of someone without proper ID who uses a name police suspect is not real.

This will help law enforcement greatly, and will save many hours that can be used for better things.
