    In some states those convicted of certain, or all, crimes have to submit DNA for data base. Like fingerprints.

    All arrested in UK, convicted or not, get DNA taken. First criminal prosecution using only DNA happened in the UK.

    Documenting identity. Almost all criminal convictions now include a DNA test for future reference. They are much more reliable than finger print records.

    To confirm or discount identity.
