    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 ā€œAā€ analysis as it is the most important part of the process. The least amount of time will be spent on the ā€œEā€ 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

She is a Distinguished Member with the IAI and has served on the science and practice committees for processing and ten-prints. With the TDIAI, she served on the Program, Education, Resolution and Membership committees. Sandy obtained her IAI certification for latent prints in 1997. She is also the coordinator for the QUIP section for the Journal of Forensic Identification and moderator for an informal email group called FIGS (Fingerprint Interest Group by Sandy) which is dedicated to sharing all aspects of forensics related information.
