The South African Police Services have informed Bald Eagle Forensics (Pty) Ltd, today, of their decision to discontinue the use of Name and ID Clearance Checks for criminal records. Attached please find a copy of the letter signed by the head of the SAPS Criminal Record and Crime Scene Management to this effect.

These checks will be permanently discontinued on the 1st of June 2011.

The only legal avenue to test the criminal record of a person will be via AFIS, the SAPS Automated Fingerprint Identification System.  Bald Eagle Forensics (Pty) Ltd already publishes this type, and it is widely used by several clients.

Rest assured that Bald Eagle Forensics (Pty) Ltd is fully geared for AFIS.

The AFIS system is available to companies to do their own checks, but please note that in order to capture fingerprints electronically, agents must be "enrolled" with the SAPS AFIS system.  Enrollment requires certification, which in turn requires training. Should you wish to rather let us do the scanning for you, please do not hesitate to contact us. 

Please make contact with our Biometric division on to schedule your training session or book your appointment.
