Crime Scene Preservation of Latent Print Evidence (New)
This class will focus on processing methods that can be utilized at a crime scene to develop
and preserve latent print evidence. The processes used often depend on whether the evidence can be removed from the scene or not. For removable evidence, methods of preservation and packaging will be covered to ensure no latent prints are lost during transport from the scene. For evidence that cannot be removed, best practices for processing at the scene will be reviewed, to focus on current methods for developing and preserving latent prints using fingerprint powdering and lifting techniques.
