SAPS Shutdown of AFIS Criminal Checks

28 October 2014 - 3 November 2014

Dear RefCheck User,

SAPS senior management has approved the shutdown of the SAPS AFIS and CRIM for the bi-annual synchronisation of the systems. The shutdown of the SAPS systems will commence at 16:00 on Tuesday, 28 October 2014 and the systems will be back online at 06:00 on Monday 3 November 2014. Afiswitch will only shut down its system on Thursday, 30 October 2014 at 16:00.

Although Afiswitch will not be able to retrieve results from 16:00 on Thursday, 30 October 2014, you will still be able to capture fingerprints on the RefCheck Fingerprint Manager and upload and release them. These criminal checks will go into a queue for processing and will be returned as soon as the system is back up and running.

We unfortunately expect a backlog of results over this period as a result of the shutdown. We will communicate further details of the backlog once this can be established.

We thank you for you patience and understanding.

Kind regards
