Fingerprint. Coloured computer-enhanced image of a human fingerprint. The ridged pattern of the skin on a person's fingertips is constant throughout life and no two fingerprints are exactly alike. Fingerprinting was first used as a means of identifying crime suspects in India, and it was adopted by the English police in 1901. It is now widely employed in police and security work.
