Professor Imwinkelried Contributes to National Institute of Standards and Technology Report on Latent Print Examination

Culminating three years of research and deliberation, Professor Edward Imwinkelried and the other members of the National Institute of Standards and Technology Expert Working Group on Human Factors in Latent Print Analysis have released a new report on "Latent Print Examination and Human Factors: Improving the Practice through a Systems Approach."  The National Institute of Justice's Office of Investigative and Forensic Sciences and Law Enforcement Standards Office (OLES) sponsored the report to assess the effects of human factors on forensic latent print analysis and to recommend ways to reduce the likelihood and consequences of human error as that evidence is processed and used.

Professor Imwinkelried is a world-renowned evidence expert and has published extensively in the field.
