Police use DHS machines to create private DNA databases of “suspicious people”

Four years ago, DHS created “Rapid DNA” whose sole mission was to create a database of everyone.

“Rapid DNA a newly commercialized technology developed by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T), addresses these challenges by greatly expediting the testing of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) that is the only biometric that can accurately verify family relationships. This technology can be used on the scene of mass fatality events, in refugee camps around the world, or at immigration offices.”

Fast forward four years to 2019 and you will see how Homeland Security uses “minimally trained police officers” to collect DNA samples of innocent people.

S&T Capability Development Support Group (CDS) Office of Standards (STN) Standards Integration and Application Deputy Director, Chris Miles said, “The added benefit is that it is fast, requires minimal training, and it can be used in a variety of operational settings.” (To find out more about minimally trained officers click here.)

Using minimally trained police officers to collect innocent people’s DNA would be headline news in most countries but not in America. Our justice system has chosen to ignore that fact and give law enforcement free reign to collect anyone’s DNA for any reason.

I do not have time to address the proverbial elephant in the room and list all the reasons why police should not be collecting and analyzing DNA samples, like fabricating or planting evidence.

Are you at risk of having police collect your DNA?

Recent studies have shown that police stop and question 20 million motorists each year or 50,000 every day. Now imagine your local/state police or Border Patrol accusing you of speeding or just being near the border and asking for your DNA.

A recent NY Times article warned that one of the “greatest uses” of RAPID DNA is creating a database of “suspicious people.”

In Bucks County, the DNA database has begun to include genetic material from people whom police consider “even just a suspicious subject,” Detective GlennVandegrift said. Mr. FredHarran, director of public safety for the Bensalem police called such cases “one of the greatest uses of this instrument.”
