Working with world class well known forensic scientists and experts, EU IAI will be organizing a series of continuing education webinars for our members and guests.
For the first webinar, we are honored to have Alice Maceo being our first instructor. (http://www.evolveforensics.com)
The webinar lecture will be on Complexity and Documentation in Latent Prints.
Current standards for documentation often site increasing complexity as a trigger for increased documentation. Complexity, however, is often in the eye of the beholder. This lecture will provide a management overview of the challenges associated with defining “complexity” and determining criteria for levels of documentation for latent prints. Benefits of documentation will be explored from a Quality Management perspective (e.g. auditing, error resolution, performance improvement). Challenges and limitations in implementing these practices will also be discussed.
