Fingerprints are completely unique to each individual. Not even identical twins have the same fingerprints. So it's no surprise that law enforcement uses fingerprint evidence to catch criminals. With engaging text and eye-catching visuals, this book examines all aspects of fingerprints and their use in forensic analysis. Real-world cases illustrate how criminals attempt to mask their fingerprints and the potential pitfalls of the fingerprinting system. Sidebars explore the science behind fingerprinting, such as the many methods of locating prints, including dusting powder and lasers to evaporated superglue. Plus, an annotated list of fingerprint-related jobs encourages students to imagine a future in STEM.
