Fingerprint Examiner Expert Witnesses often have varying types of forensic backgrounds, as their skills may be valuable for legal matters.
Fingerprint examining refers to the act of matching an individual to the fingerprints he or she may have left behind, usually within the context of a crime scene.
The process of fingerprint examination consists of scattering a powder over a surface or object, which will then trace out the image of fingerprints if any are to be found within the area in question.
Fingerprint consulting is often essential throughout the proceedings of a court case, as it can be used to identify an individual and determine whether he or she were present when a crime was taking place.
Fingerprint examiner expert witnesses may utilize fingerprinting technology to identify latent fingerprints, which are prints invisible to human eyes without the use of laboratory testing.
Fingerprint examiner expert witnesses may also be experienced in additional forms of crime scene investigation including:
- Working as footwear examiners
- Document examiners
- Tire track examiners
- Practicing other methods of deciphering track evidence
Document examination, including signature and handwriting identification, may also benefit from the use of fingerprinting examination in court cases involving questioned documents.
The use of fingerprinting examination may serve as part of a larger form of forensic science, which often includes blood evidence, forensic toxicology, and other types of DNA identification, each of which may lead to the desired and successful outcome of a lawsuit.
