Automated Fingerprint Criminal Record Checks
We do quick and convenient electronic criminal enquiry services, and it’s available to individuals, the corporate sector and private enterprises that require periodic criminal checks and clearance for commercial (pre-employment) purposes.
Afri Guard is a registered service provider for this and has acquired an AFISwitch work station that interfaces with the South African Police Service Automated Fingerprint Identification System (SAPS AFIS) via Ideco’s AFISwitch.
The system captures the fingerprints by means of an electronic fingerprint reader. These fingerprints are electronically transmitted and searched against the SAPS AFIS database. On completion of the search, a result is reverted to the AFISwitch work station.
We will receive a no illicit activity identified, or a possible illicit activity identified result, within 48 to 72 hours.
Please note that if you received a possible illicit activity identified result, it will take up to 3 months to receive the reports for the offense.
