Today we began our study of 'print' evidence. We learned about fingerprint characteristics and the different ways to collect fingerprint evidence. Next week we will take our fingerprints and analyze the patterns. Looking ahead, there will be a quiz on November 16; the primary focus will be hair, fiber and print evidence but there will also be some review questions from the first unit. On November 23, we will do a semester review with a game of Forensic Jeopardy.
