There’s lots of talk going around about implanting chips in people for I.D. purpose, however there’s a only a finite number of places that can make these chips and they’re not exactly cheap (about $200.00 USD now, less later in quantity). Also, it’d be somewhat of a logistical problem to schedule the entire working class population of the U.S. to stop in for an implant session.
Using the past as prologue, there’s a much less complex way to achieve the same results, a marking on the body that’s readable anywhere by anyone without any high tech equipment needed, it’s often called the tattoo.
We have (At least here in Los Angeles) a nearly infinite number of places to get a tattoo done, and again, going back to history we know that it doesn’t have to be ornate or even very artistic to work.
This makes it so easy for just an average public worker droid to merely take a look at someone and verify their background history, why some might even call it “the final solution“. Because so many people have already permanently marked themselves, a precursor sort of I.D. program is basically already in use, with law enforcement personnel storing the data and working out the bugs.
Once a digital photo has been entered into the national (or international) crime data base (where it’s found with a little research) by any government agency), it takes no more than someone typing in a few key search words like “angel, wings, hope, clouds, long hair, left rear shoulder” and pow, the investigating agency is provided with a short list of the usual suspects.
And then, there’s an even lower tech version:
