Latent Print Processing Guide Excerpt :

Latent prints are chance or accidental impressions left by friction-ridge skin on a surface, regardless of whether they are visible or invisible at the time of deposition. Recognition of evidence that may contain fingerprints and the processes that can develop these latent prints is crucial in preventing valuable evidence from being left undetected. Latent Print Processing Guide goes beyond the basic police training, covering latent prints in detail and providing first responders with adequate training and guidelines. To process latent prints, examiners use various techniques including electronic, chemical, cyanoacrylate, and physical methods. Latent Print Processing Guide offers a broad understanding of latent print detection, development, and recovery, including insights on stateof-the-art technologies. Includes history of latent print identification and some of the pioneers and their contributions. Defines the differences between chemical and physical processes and explains process sequence protocols and recovery methods for different types of evidence. Chapters include: process selection, application and recovery, special considerations for specific materials, protocol sequence and process formulas, including required materials, application method, expected results, safety measures, and references. The text is written so that non-crime scene or non-crime laboratory personnel can also gain valuable information from it.

Criminal Investigation Handbook Strategy Law and Science 2022 Edition Excerpt :

Criminal Investigation Handbook has been written for all those responsible for conducting criminal investigations (including the police, federal special agents and investigators, governmental administration and security agencies, prosecutors, defense attorneys, etc) and those who need to understand the activities of the investigative process. These are the individuals and agencies which use these means and products of such investigations in their daily practice. It provides them with practical advice on how best to prepare cases for ultimate presentation in court and makes them aware of the most likely points at which their evidence is vulnerable and subject to attack. The Handbook answers not only the basic interrogatives of the investigation field: WHO... WHAT... WHERE... WHEN... and HOW, but, like no other treatise, Criminal Investigation Handbook also further expands and answers the most important question when a criminal investigation is started: WHY?... • WHY should the investigative report be all-encompassing? • WHY should the investigator consider the actions of the entire criminal justice system and look at the investigation as a process? • WHY does the investigator need to understand the value and principles of the forensic sciences and the capabilities of the crime laboratory? • WHY should the investigation begin with a strategic view of the end of the judicial process? This Handbook combines the in-depth analysis of a treatise with the how-to and why-to assistance of a practical guide. It aspires to be both substantive and practical. Suggestions are made herein as to the most effective way to proceed in investigating a criminal case, what evidence is the most probative not only from the perspective of satisfying the essential elements of the crime charged, but also from the point of view of convincing the judge or jury that the accused is guilty of committing, aiding or abetting, or soliciting the commission of that crime. The Handbook focuses on

Cold Case Homicides Excerpt :

Written by a seasoned professional with over 30 years of experience in law enforcement, Cold Case Homicides: Practical Investigative Techniques provides effective and accessible information to those responsible for investigating and resolving previously examined - but still unsolved - cold case homicides. The book merges theory with practice through the use of case histories, photographs, illustrations, and checklists that convey essential, fundamental concepts while providing a strong, practical basis for the investigative process. It combines proven techniques from forensics, psychology, and criminal investigation, and focuses on technologies that may not have been available at the time of the crime. This guide defines the characteristics of a cold case homicide; details various investigative methods used by law enforcement agencies; explores the actual experiences of detectives in re-opening case files; and presents current technologies such as ViCAP, HITS, and TracKRS used in the identification of cases related to the re-opened case, or its perpetrator. It also highlights technological changes that contribute greatly to law enforcement's abilities to solve cold case homicides such as computerized print technology, the specificity of DNA, and the expanding data banks that enable the linkage of previously unknown suspects to the crimes they committed. Addressing methods particularly valuable to cold cases, Cold Case Homicides: Practical Investigative Techniques assists the investigator in being prepared, focused, objective - and successful in obtaining the truth.

Introduction to Biometrics Excerpt :

Biometric recognition, or simply biometrics, is the science of establishing the identity of a person based on physical or behavioral attributes. It is a rapidly evolving field with applications ranging from securely accessing one’s computer to gaining entry into a country. While the deployment of large-scale biometric systems in both commercial and government applications has increased the public awareness of this technology, "Introduction to Biometrics" is the first textbook to introduce the fundamentals of Biometrics to undergraduate/graduate students. The three commonly used modalities in the biometrics field, namely, fingerprint, face, and iris are covered in detail in this book. Few other modalities like hand geometry, ear, and gait are also discussed briefly along with advanced topics such as multibiometric systems and security of biometric systems. Exercises for each chapter will be available on the book website to help students gain a better understanding of the topics and obtain practical experience in designing computer programs for biometric applications. These can be found at: http://www.csee.wvu.edu/~ross/BiometricsTextBook/. Designed for undergraduate and graduate students in computer science and electrical engineering, "Introduction to Biometrics" is also suitable for researchers and biometric and computer security professionals.
