fingerprints

You have to give your fingerprints. If you are 15 years old or over and the police suspect that you have committed an offence, they can take your fingerprints. If you refuse they may use reasonable force to take them. If you are between 10 and 14 years of age, you can refuse to give your fingerprints unless both you and a parent or guardian agree, or the police obtain a court order.
