Information about the King County AFIS program
King County Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) provides enhanced fingerprint ID services to the criminal justice entities within the county, including the UWPD. AFIS staff fingerprint and identify inmates booked into county jails. Wanted or dangerous offenders are identified prior to release, even if they provide false names to evade outstanding warrants. Staff also recover latent fingerprints and palmprints from major crime scenes to identify criminals. The program includes technology that makes it possible to collect and match prints. Overall, AFIS aids in solving crimes and contributes to the safety of our citizens and officers.
