The Houston Police Department today became the first law enforcement agency in the state of  Texas to utilize a new crime fighting tool interfaced with the Federal Bureau of  Investigations’  Repository for Individuals of   Special Concern (RISC) database, which will enable officers to immediately check the true identifies of potential criminals on the streets.

The Blue Check Mobile Identification Device and Mobile ID II, will allow HPD to digitally scan fingerprints of  people under reasonable suspicion or arrestable charges, against HPD’s and the FBI’s databases for criminal background checks.

 They can scan fingerprints and get results back in three minutes or less. 

HPD began using the devices on July 31, but just announced the new crime fighting tools today.
