Program puts focus on fingerprints

first_img“We ran a set of prints to see how long it would take and to determine the fee,” West Covina police Cmdr. Mark Tedesco said. The first set of prints entered into the system were traced back to Francisco Lopez Jr., 19, of La Puente, who was arrested Monday by the West Covina police on suspicion of grand theft auto, Tedesco said. The fast results have excited the officers at the Walnut/Diamond Bar Station. “The fingerprint recovery program is a wonderful addition to Diamond Bar and the ongoing crime prevention and neighborhood watch program,” Clarke said. Before the program began, the Walnut/Diamond Bar Station had its fingerprints analyzed by the county sheriff. But due to the large number of prints dropped off at the station each day, certain crimes such as car burglaries were lower priority compared to rape and murder, Tedesco said. “It may take three to four months because they are serving such a large area,” Tedesco said. “With the new program, prints can be processed within a week as compared to months.” Maxey is encouraged by the early progress. “It is a successful program,” he said. “It’s great and it just shows that the city of Diamond Bar always stays on the cutting edge of enhancing public safety.” ambrosia.sarabia@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2303160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

DIAMOND BAR – The sheriff’s Walnut/Diamond Bar Station has started a new program to get fingerprints faster from crime scenes and to get a head start on catching culprits. A technician trained in print recovery can now respond immediately to various crimes. In the past, the sheriff’s crime laboratory was sent to recover fingerprints, and response time could take days, officials said. And the station is working out a deal in which they can take the fingerprints to the West Covina Police Department and get them processed quicker, rather than take them to the sheriff’s crime lab. While details have not yet been finalized, officials said they are encouraged by early results.

Some involve doughnuts.“Within the first week \, we have arrested someone on prints,” sheriff’s Lt. Joe Maxey said. “This is wonderful for the city,” said Sandy Clarke, law enforcement technician for the Walnut/Diamond Bar Station. “I think this is one of the best things they could have done to help catch people and deter others from committing crimes.” Clarke was transferred from her position in crime prevention to law enforcement technician after undergoing three weeks of training at the the sheriff’s crime lab. She is responsible for lifting prints at crime scenes and having them analyzed. On July 31, Clarke took a variety of prints to the West Covina police to have them analyzed and to help establish the terms of the contract. last_img read more
