Police Forces See the Benefits of Digitising
Back in 2013, some of the police forces in the UK began digitising their fingerprint records "due to a shortage on space for holding paper records." This is often a reason companies turn to document scanning services but now the force seems to have caught the digital bug.
It has recently been announced that West Yorkshire police are ditching the notebook, which has been a symbol of policemen and women the nation over, in favour of digital devices to improve efficiency. After a crime has been dealt with, instead of going back to the station to fill out large amounts of paperwork to be filed away, officers can now key in the details on their devices and be back serving the community in no time with the information accessible quickly within the force.
