General

Finger Print Science (Dactyloscopy) is universally accepted as the science of personal identification. It is because of the permanency, persistency and variety of the ridges (the narrow hairy lines) constituting the Finger Print Bureau. Finger Print of a person remains unchanged from birth to death. Finger Prints of even identical twins differ, unlike DNA finger print. The first finger Print Bureau in the world was established in India in the year 1897 and the Travancore Finger Print Bureau was started functioning in 1900

  • Entry of the burglar should not be tampered
  • Articles handled by the burglar should not be touched or handed by any one prior to the inspection
  • Articles and places where the burglar has touched during the operation should not be handled by any one even with kerchief in hand as is commonly seen in movies. Such handling if done will cause erasure of the print of the culprit and hence this precaution.
  • However, if any such handling has been done out of anxiety by any one, the fact should be revealed to the inspecting team. The intention is to take Finger prints of such person for the purpose of elimination of their finger prints.
