Compare the location and sequence of red dots with that of your classmates and examine the similarities and differences with the placement of minutiae. Did everyone select the same features in exactly the same places? Why might you observe differences in dot placement? Lab Introduction to Processing Methods 8 Objectives • To understand physical and chemical processing methods for porous and nonporous substrates • To explore how environmental factors and deposition time contribute to the persistence of latent fingerprints on various substrates Background Latent prints are invisible and must be processed with powders or chemicals to make them visible.
Which latent prints resulted in the best-quality fingerprint lifts? Why? Lab Forensic Light Sources 9 Objectives • To understand how light is used as a forensic tool • To visualize fingerprints with oblique white lighting • To visualize fingerprints with a fluorescent light source Background Light is a powerful tool. Any latent print development process should be preceded by a nondestructive visual examination of the item of interest using oblique lighting: shining a beam of white light at oblique angles to the surface.
Using too much pressure causes distortion in the known fingerprint. Fingerprint powder is another medium used to record friction ridge skin using white adhesive sheets known as the Handiprint System® (available from CSI Forensic Supply). The resulting major case prints display details such as friction ridge edge shapes, pores, and fine creases that assist with the identification process. The powder method is also used to collect fingerprints from deceased persons, as it is difficult to roll a decedent’s fingers.
