FINGERPRINTS IS THE FATHER OF ALL BRANCHES OF FORENSIC SCIENCE. How much do you agree?
A 3D scanner is a device that analyses a real-world object or environment to collect data on its shape and possibly its appearance (e.g. colour). The collected data can then be used to construct digital three-dimensional models. The 3D Scanners are being used for manufacturing of different products as well as being used by different agencies like fire department, metrology department, etc. These are basically used for constructions and productions because of their precision measurement Read more about Use of 3D LASER SCANNERS IN INVESTIGATIONS.[…]
3D scanning can now help solve crimes. Police departments are now using 3D scanning software to create three-dimensional images of crime scenes and evidence. A 3D printer scanner can create casts of footprints and fingerprints, 3D models of car crashes and industrial accidents, and help with facial reconstruction and identification that can help ID victims. Some departments are even using images created by these scanners in court to convict criminals. Currently, investigating officers must use Read more about Law enforcement agencies and 3D Scanners.[…]
Documentation of crime scene One of the most important aspects of any crime scene investigation is properly documenting the crime scene. This documentation provides a record of the evidence found at the scene and the observations of the scene itself at the time it was discovered. A complete and accurate record of the scene is essential for investigating the crime and for presenting the case when it goes to court. Documenting the scene begins with Read more about Documentation of crime scene[…]
EXPERT EVIDENCE AND ITS ADMISSIBILITY. The Courts required expert evidence to some limited field i.e. medical doctors, engineers, architects, stockbrokers etc in the past. With the vast development in science and technology, the need of expert opinion/evidence has now become very common as well as helpful to the Courts to reach upon a fair conclusion regarding commission of an offence. Today the role of experts has been widened and the Courts take their assistance in Read more about Expert Evidence and it’s Admissibility[…]
Every fingerprint expert has his own way and style of comparison of two different sets of fingerprints impressions. One set of fingerprints belongs to a known person and have been provided to expert for comparison as a specimen set. The other fingerprint impression may be a chance print, developed and lifted from scene of crime, or it may be a disputed finger print impression on some questioned document(s) or it may be from the AFIS/AFIS Read more about Steps in Fingerprints Identification[…]
