Fingerprint Archive

FS Archive




Electronic archive for fingerprint records

Mentalix’s FS Archive software allows law enforcement agencies to not only eliminate the need to retrieve fingerprint cards from storage, but also acts as an easily accessible electronic archive for all of your agency’s fingerprint records -- whether the prints were captured on inked cards or a live scanner.  The FS Archive database can be populated with fingerprints captured on any brand of live scanner.  However, a live scan system is not required; a database can also be built from past fingerprint arrest records submitted by an agency via hard copy or electronic means to some state agencies, or from inked fingerprint cards.


Eliminate your filing cabinets that are filled with old fingerprint cards.  With FS Archive, you can store, search and view your converted electronic files on a local computer.  Move the hard copies to off-site storage and free up space in your office.
