Fingerprint classification and comparison has been a requirement for many years for detectives and investigators since the Henry System of classification was developed. Recent advances in computer technology for fingerprints through AFIS have benefitted investigations while the individual ability to read prints has become a lost art. The ability of the investigator to look at a latent fingerprint from a crime scene and know what type it is has helped solve crime for over a century. This course allows the new detective or even the experienced investigator to “know” the science of fingerprinting. This course combines anatomy and physiology of fingerprints, theory, comparing latent and known exemplars, with actual crime scene cases and court cases. The student will have a foundation to move on to intermediate and advanced fingerprinting after completing this course. The course is taught by a veteran forensic science and fingerprint expert affiliated with the IAI.REGISTER FOR THIS COURSE
