USIS Wins Fingerprinting Deal from Army

USIS picked up a deal from the Army to facilitate computerized fingerprint records from Army Recruiting Commands to the FBI and back to the Army.

“A fingerprint check is more reliable than a name-based check, which can be inaccurate, specifically when an applicant has a common name or provides a false name or alias, ” said USIS VP of Investigative Services Damon Hudson. “Fingerprint channeling offers positive identification that ensures any criminal history information is truly that of the applicant and in a way that is fast and secure.”
