Webinar Synposis:

ACE-V has been called many things over the years, the least as a way to explain the steps or phases used by Latent Print Examiners when conducting latent print comparisons.

This presentation explains these steps in detail. With the bulk of time being spent on the “A” analysis as it is the most important part of the process. The least amount of time will be spent on the “E” evaluation phase as conclusions change from different agencies as well as different countries.

Topics covered:

  • Orientation clues for finger and feet
  • False ridge detail
  • Detection of forged or fabricated prints
  • Suitability
  • Distortion
  • Simultaneous Impressions
  • Rarity / weight / tolerance
