Hi.
Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.
Yes. In fact it is compulsory.
Everybody who passes through the doors a police station now under arrest has their fingerprints taken, a DNA sample and photographs and a speculative search is made against them.
Can I clarify anything for you?
