The South African Police Service (SAPS) is phasing out its manual name clearance criminal check system and will shortly be moving to an Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS). This is based on electronic fingerprint scans that will be used to establish the existence of a criminal record. According to LexisNexis this will change the way that businesses and HR departments handle criminal checks of individuals for employment purposes.

In a country where crime and fraud is prevalent, and with an SAPS criminal database of over 7-million records, LexisNexis RefCheck will play an important role in helping organisations ensure they make sound career appointments, because all the necessary checks are fast, accurate, discreet and easy to commission. 
From the left is Samantha Mudaly, LexisNexis Human Resources Manager, whose criminal record is being scanned by Nelly Mlambo, Human Resources Director, with the new AFISwitch electronic device. The new RefCheck tool from LexisNexis Risk Management can be accessed anywhere via the web and makes the recruitment process for businesses quick and accurate.
For further information please call Shannon Ambrose of LexisNexis on (031) 268 3111 or (082) 411 5237.
