Police officials in the Massachusetts town of Adams say the department has added a live-scan fingerprinting device.Police Chief Richard Tarsa said on Wednesday that because of the way the Adams Police Department conducts sex offender registrations, it was one of four departments in the state to receive the $30,000 device. “We take care of it in Adams in an efficient matter and do so appropriately and properly,” Tarsa said. “Because of our impeccable record keeping, they titled us as one of the four recipients.”Tarsa said the department has had the scanner and affiliated equipment for some time now and officers have been trained in how to use it.Instead of taking a print on a card and scanning it, the new device can get results much quicker. He said in some cases the scanner gathers results in five minutes.”It is almost instantaneous, and it is a huge benefit,” he said.Tarsa said the department will receive another $10,000 enforcement grant for speeding prevention. He said some of this will go towards new radars for the cruisers.
