CJE 2677 - Modern Fingerprint Technology


3 credits
Prerequisites: CJE 2671  with a minimum grade of "C"
This course employs the most up to date technology in use by law enforcement and investigative agencies and forensic scientists for the advanced collection, cataloging, searching, comparison, and identification of latent fingerprints. The automated fingerprint identification system software creates and stores a database of fingerprints and their unique characteristics and allows students to search, retrieve, and match them. Students also generate reports indicating the quality of the matching elements and the degree of certainty of those matches. Students use the technology to learn to improve the quality of investigative outcomes and courtroom testimony involving latent fingerprints.
