The agency is in the final stages of rolling out a new database that will let law enforcement search for and identify criminals by palm print, iris image and mug shot as well as fingerprints. Early results are very positive.
This is the teknoids.net website, a site for teknoids everywhere.
Teknoids are tech support, web designers, trainers, education and instructional technologists, sys admins, net admins, programmers, developers, IT managers, CIOs, librarians, library directors, and tech-inclined faculty in legal academia, non-profits, the judiciary, and law firms plus others with interests in this area. Teknoids is a big tent:)
A major component of this site is the teknoids mailing list archive which is searchable back to July, 1997. The teknoids mailing list was created by Tom Bruce of LII in 1992. You can subscribe to (or unsubscribe from) the mailing list here.
