A must read if you're responsible for enrolling subjects into an AFIS

This is especially important when collecting fingerprints that may be used to properly identify criminals. And on a more practical level, it costs time and money when the receiving AFIS (such as the FBI) won’t accept the fingerprints due to low quality.
