SERIES: 28392
TITLE: Fingerprint cards
DATES: 1890-
ARRANGEMENT:

DESCRIPTION: These are cards which verify a subject's identity and which are also used for the identification and apprehension of suspects. The cards contain the subject's fingerprints as well as all necessary information required to identify the individual, including fingerprint classification number, name, address, date of birth, date of arrest, signature of subject, photograph, occupation, and place of employment. A copy is forwarded to the Bureau of Criminal Identification. Since the Bureau of Criminal Identification maintains a complete file of all fingerprints, it is unnecessary for individual agencies to maintain their own file.
