Jacksonville Police have a new crime solving tool.
It's called AFIS or automated fingerprint identification system. It's a database of fingerprints of arrests made by the department.
Investigators use the prints to try to find a latent fingerprint at a crime scene that could crack a case.
Before, investigators were sending their prints to the state, which would take up to twelve to eighteen months to get results.
Now the time has been drastically reduced with this new software. The ninety eight thousand dollar fingerprint database software was bought by drug bust seizure money.
