If you’re ticketed by Green Bay police, you’ll get more than a fine. You’ll get fingerprinted, too. It’s a new way police are cracking down on crime....
.....Police say they want to prevent the identity theft problem that Milwaukee has, where 13 percent of all violators give a false name.
But in Green Bay, where police say they only average about five cases in a year, drivers we talked with think the new policy is extreme.

A method of identifying a check signer comprises the application of a fingerprint of a person to an identification card in invisible ink. The same fingerprint of the person is applied to the check in invisible ink in the presence of a person requested to cash the check. The fingerprint of the identification card is scanned to provide a first set of electrical signals. The fingerprint of the check is scanned to provide a second set of electrical signals. The first and second sets of electrical signals are compared. Comparison or non-comparison of the first and second sets of electrical signals is indicated to indicate the authenticity of the signer.
