The objective of this course is to provide each participant with an increased understanding of scientific principles and how to apply those principles to the examination process. Understanding this information will simplify testimony because science provides the answers to the most difficult questions (How much is enough? How to you diminish bias? When is blind verification valuable? How much documentation is needed?).
Target AudienceThis course is designed for all pattern evidence practitioners regardless of experience. Examiners will learn principles used within a scientific environment and how to apply these concepts to thoughts, conclusions, and to research. Exercised, specific to fingerprints, will demonstrate the value of rigorous application of scientific protocols for arriving at conclusions and for assessing the conclusions of others. Practitioners will gain experience in conveying these concepts, which will improve training programs and create testimony which will withstand court challenges.
