The development inside the technological and communications progression has matured from a lot of developments within central science and its growth is ongoing. Both positive and negative effects have occurred from the technology working in our criminal justice system. In this paper we will cover the different options for new technology that helps stop crime.

Automated Fingerprint Identification System
In the 1980’s there were a lot of unsolved criminal case due to lack of technology in older data bases and the odds of trying to find finger print matches. The Automated Fingerprint Identification System was created and used first in 1984 to solve a big case in the murder of Miriam Slamovich that was unsolved from the 1970’s. This led to other unsolved cases being completed successfully in a lot of different cities after the AFIS was created. This system alone has improved the speed and exactness of the very popular 10 point process of prints. A fingerprint sent by graphic conduction from a crime scene to another place within a state can be processed instantly. This then allows officials to issue all point bulletins with in ample time of a crime being committed. This kind of technology opens up communication with the population to catch a criminal fast and proficiently.

Facial Recognition
There is a massive disagreement in the present day concerning the biometric identification technology which is used to boost the security through travel. The research inside these technologies has been used to extend ways in how the individuals identify faces for detection and develop the similar strategy in a replicated mechanical system that will scan faces and conclude their likeness with those in a database. It is very important that the video surveillance transportation is in position and capable to offer imagery for facial features to be analyzed if we want this system to be greatly affective for the criminal justice system. Facial identification has to be...
