Alphonse Bertillon (April 23, 1853?February 13, 1914) was a French law enforcement officer and biometrics researcher who created anthropometry, an identification system based on physical measurements. Anthropometry was the first scientific system police used to identify criminals. Bertillon is referenced in the Sherlock Holmes story The Hound of the Baskervilles in which one of Holmes's clients refers to Holmes as the "second highest expert in Europe" after Bertillon.
