Who’s MARK

Attend this session to learn everything you ever wanted to know about fingerprints and footwear evidence. Learn realities of processing impression evidence at crimes scenes, what a forensic examiner can determine by a lift or cast, and how forensic chemical processing can enhance prints on problematic surfaces. Attendees will receive instruction from one of the most knowledgeable experts in the field, followed by hands-on activities where students will develop impression evidence from dust utilizing an electrostatic dust print lifter, and on porous surfaces, including paper and cardboard utilizing chemical processes. Cyanoacrylate (“superglue”) techniques for non-porous surfaces will be practiced to round-out this special hands-on experience.
