Criminal Fingerprint Identification Screening

Worldwide the acceptance of biometrics and specifically fingerprint identification technology is growing at a phenomenal rate. In South Africa, the application of biometrics is set to grow to unprecedented heights.

AFISwitch is South Africa’s sole provider to the private sector of automated criminal record checks. AFISwitch, interfaces with the national SAPS AFIS to determine the criminal record status of a person. AFISwitch digitally captures fingerprints and has a turnaround time of approximately 48 hours as opposed to weeks or months required by the conventional paper-based service. AFISwitch allows companies and institutions to undertake background checks on job applicants and existing employees.

In order to capture fingerprints electronically, agents must be enrolled with the AFIS system and that requires certification and training. Only persons with no criminal convictions and a clear credit record can be trained.
