As part of the annual Biometric Identification Conference, held last week in Los Angeles (US) and attended by more than three hundred participants from five continents, Portugal’s LPC / PJ police force and laboratory was awarded the Bill White Prize for the best work of the year 2017 in the field of fingerprint identification.

The case that was the basis of the distinction came as part of an investigation into online child pornography, conducted by the PJ’s National Unit to Combat Cybercrime and Technology Crime (UNC3T).
The intervention of the LPC, which led to the identification of two sexual abusers through fingerprints, was considered innovative and of great technical-scientific quality, opening new fields to the use of lofoscopy (the branch within criminalistics in charge of analysing and processing every papillary evidence derived from a criminal offence) and in the use of biometric databases.
