The Fingerprint Detection (R)Evolution
Looking at the past, present and future of fingerprints in crime investigations
Fingerprint identification has been a key practice in policing and forensic science for over 100 years in New South Wales. Invisible fingermarks surround our every move. Technology and our understanding of the chemical world have increased dramatically since the first latent fingermarks were uncovered at crime scenes by charcoal powders.
In this talk Dr Xanthe Spindler will take you through the exciting world of fingerprints. She’ll go through the history of fingerprint identification, explain the techniques, methods and applications used in forensic science and discuss the advances in technology that continue to change the future of fingermark detection in solving crimes.
