Israeli Police unveils tattoos database

A new database has joined the DNA database, finger prints and identification photos, which serves the forensic department in the Israeli police - tattoos database. The database holds hundreds of tattoos which can characterize different criminal organizations and groups. It is intended to facilitate the identification of criminals and their affiliations. Seniors at the Israeli police hope to determine the management of the database in Knesset legislation, in order to use the stored information as admissible evidence in legal proceedings. Source: Israel Today (Hebrew).
