Early anatomists described fingerprinting, but their interest in modern fingerprinting began in 1880, when British science journal Nature published British Henry Faulds and Williams (William). James Herschel's letter described the fingerprint's uniqueness and permanence. Their observations were confirmed by a British scientist, Sir Francis Galton, and his first preliminary fingerprint classification system was based on the classification of fingerprints into bow, chevron, and douche patterns. of. Galton's system was the basis for the fingerprint classification system developed by Sir Edward Henry, who later became the chief of the London Metropolitan Police, and Juan Vucetich of Argentina. The Galton-Henry fingerprint classification system was announced in June 1900 and was formally introduced into the London Police Department in 1901 and quickly became the basis of its criminal identification records. This system was quickly adopted by law enforcement agencies in English-speaking countries worldwide and has now become the most widely used fingerprint classification method. In 1888 Juan Bustic, an employee of the police department of the province of Buenos Aires, designed an original fingerprint classification system and published it in the form of a book named Comparative Fingerprinting Law. 1904). His system is still used today in most Spanish-speaking countries.
