Hi again, this is from a script. Its context is two police officers arresting a driver. I'm not sure about the meaning of the words "index" and "prove" in this context. Are they simply "prueba" and "dedo indice."





BROWNLEE: Probe or not?
BOOTHE: Probe. Here in a second.
BROWNLEE: All right.
BOOTHE: You are under arrest. Do you understand?
SPOKANE DRIVER: For what?
KING: Put your hands behind your back.
BOOTHE: For failing to stop when signaled by the police. (os) Stop. Do you understand you’re under arrest? (on camera) Index! Do it!

Thanks

Explanation:
Juan, hay un sistema de control de identidad y antecedentes que utiliza la policía. Se toman las huellas dactilares del sujeto, se ingresan en la computadora y el sistema recupera toda la información relacionada con esa huella.
Creo que a esto se refiere
