Then & Now
The Cobb County Sheriff's Office has a rich history of
175 years serving the community. Through this period, our office has undergone a great
transformation. The concept of our role is still the same, we have adapted to the
advances of the world. This transformation has been to benefit the community.
The following will present some of the technologies and changes that have been implemented.
In the old days, one would have to fingerprint an individual with ink and a roller.
This was extremely messy and the quality was inconsistent.
Today, we use an inkless system that "checks" the quality of the fingerprint. This
method provides immediate notification of problems with the prints.
