Mexican police employ fingerprint biometrics to supervise ex-convicts

Mexican authorities are currently using biometrics to keep an eye on 41,000 ex-convicts, to prevent them escaping abroad or committing more crimes.

Each month, the ex-convicts have to report to the authorities and have their fingerprints scanned by a biometric reader – to prove it’s them and not someone they’ve asked to take their place.
