Forensic Fiber Identification
From Monday, November 06 2017
To Friday, November 10 2017
Every day

 Description: The five-day Forensic Fiber Identification course introduces the principles and practice of polarized light microscopy (PLM) to the identification of natural and man-made fibers. The course is intended for forensic scientists seeking to learn the basics of forensic fiber microscopy. The students learn time honored and highly specialized PLM methods that can be successfully applied to virtually all types of natural and manufactured fibers. In addition to the core topics of polarized light microscopy and fiber identification, this course also covers a number of additional topics of special interest to forensic scientists, including fabric construction, fiber transfer and persistence, fiber sampling, collection and recovery, contamination control, preparation of cross-sections, comparison microscopy and the significance of fiber evidence.

Forensic Podiatry (Part Two of Two)

THE DISCIPLINE of forensic podiatry—or, in other words, the examination of pedal evidence—has progressed significantly over the past ten years. It is no longer a question of “What can you do with a footprint?” but rather, “Who can we use to evaluate the footprint?” Cases involving pedal evidence, especially bloody footprints and issues of determining shoe sizing or fit issues compared to questioned footwear, have become more common over the past two or three years.
