This paper analyse the most important and significant advancements in forensic science using fingerprint detection as a biometric sign for identification. Technological advancements from the dawn of the age of the computer to the beginning of the age of the internet, have all created easier and more efficient ways of criminal investigation. Police departments throughout the United States and in other countries now have ways to easily store and share information and eliminate problems that traditional paper records posed. In the case of difficulty in extracting orientation images reliably, a general purpose approach improving local image contrast is favoured. Today time with the increase in population crime increases day by day, and Police Department have over loaded work. To decrease the crime and to identify the theft and criminal, we try to make a new age safety system in which detect the theft by matching his /her Foot finger prints with Hand finger prints. Because due to plastic surgery sometimes criminal change their identity, and protect them self from punishment.

In this work fingerprint and foot finger prints are recognized with the help of minutia because the minutia is the one element of the footprint and fingerprint that helps to find the matching with same and different persons. In this work database is created with the help of different persons footprints and fingerprints. After creating the database the matching of footprints and fingerprints is done with the help of that database and the accuracy of the footprints and the fingerprints are calculated.
