When was the last time you attended a fingerprint class on analysis? Not a theoretical discussion on how to implement ACE-V, or how to document your analysis. We’re talking about a practical fingerprint class on how to quickly and accurately interpret the visual information found in latent prints. If you’re looking for a class to sharpen your skills, speed up your comparisons and become more confident in your analysis this is the class for you. For far too long latent print examiners have been trained how to examine prints using the outdated definition-based system originally designed to teach tenprint examiners how to classify fingerprints. It’s time that latent print examiners learn an intuitive approach to analysis based on how the human mind naturally perceives information. It’s the instructor’s goal to advance the latent analysis process beyond the basic search smart tips and tricks by outlining a systematic yet practical approach to latent print analysis. This approach known as Logical Latent Analysis can benefit new examiners as well as experienced examiners.
This two-day course will cover innovative techniques designed to make examiners more efficient and confident at their jobs. You will learn new techniques like: how to determine “directional flow,” how to recognize the “axis” of a print, the importance of the “funnel effect,” how “magnetic north” indicates delta location, where the “baseline” is located and much more.
The instructor will use lecture, class discussion, and comparison exercises to reinforce the techniques discussed.
This skills building course includes innovative techniques that can be employed by latent print examiners to improve both their ability and efficiency.
