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 as an examiner and become more confident in your analysis, this is the class for you. This two-day course of instruction will cover innovative techniques that can be employed when conducting latent print examinations. Techniques include methods for latent orientation, detailed pattern analysis, distinguishing thumbs from fingers, creating a basic shape search, using a crease(s) for searching, delta interpretation, and much more. The instructor will use lecture, class discussion, and exercises to reinforce the techniques discussed.
It’s the instructor’s goal to advance the latent analysis process beyond the basic search smart tips by outlining a systematic yet practical approach to analysis. This approach known as Logical Latent Analysis can be helpful for new examiners as well as experienced examiners.
This skills building course includes innovative techniques that can be employed by latent print examiners and tenprint examiners to improve their ability and efficiency.
