The viability of latent prints depends on the surface, the integrity of the print, and the time that has passed. Other factors affecting fingerprints include the temperature and environment to which they have been exposed, particularly if over a long period of time. Under reasonable conditions, prints are stable and can be lifted for a period up to many months. Accu-metrics uses certain magnetic powders and other dusting materials to clarify the print and enable it to be lifted. The print can then be compared to a reference print submitted by the client for the purpose of establishing whether there is a match.
Can police results be challenged?
Fingerprint evidence can be challanged on several grounds.linking a print to a crime is not absolute for a variety of reasons. not only the multiple points and details of matching latent or palm prints but positional details and other factors may be relevant. Consensus judgements of fingerprints for comparison show range of errors from miniscule to substantial.
The staff at Accu-metrics includes criminology experts with years of experience with police forces and various agencies including interpol.
