Introduction to the Science of Friction Ridge Examination
From Monday, December 05 2016
To Friday, December 09 2016
Every day

 Sponsor: Ron Smith and Associates

Description: This course has been designed with many different groups in mind and is suited for law enforcement personnel and students who are new to forensics as well as law enforcement personnel and students who are already familiar with forensic identification matters including experienced 10 Print and Latent Print examiners who are already conducting examinations or are being trained to do so. Because of the scope of material covered, this course is beneficial for all but the seasoned examiners and it can serve as an excellent introduction into the science for those of other disciplines, particularly crime scene personnel.  Law enforcement personnel will be able to return to work and immediately use this training to continue their development as examiners.  Students would be able to apply for jobs that require such training as a requirement.  Other professionals involved in both the academic and judicial systems would also benefit as they would receive a broad overview of the
science without having to put it to practical use.

Lifting Latent Fingerprints from Difficult Surfaces

ALMOST ANYONE can find, process, and lift a latent print that happens to be in a logical and obvious place like a door handle, a beer can, or a butcher knife. But sometimes, a latent print is not just sitting there in a logical and obvious place. Sometimes, you have to use your imagination to find the print and your skills to lift it.
