The Hawthorn Woods Police Department recently was awarded $9,348.90 through ComEd's 2017 Green Region and Powering Safe Communities grant program to buy Livescan technology. Livescan is an inkless electronic system that captures an individual's fingerprint image and demographic data in a digitized format. That information can be forwarded to law enforcement agencies for state and national processing and real time communication with other jurisdictions. The purchase will help police serve a growing number of residents and empower officers through the improved delivery of information, according to the village.
