We simply won’t be able to do our work the way we have and retain the respect that we feel entitled to. We will need to earn this respect by finding ways to measure the suitability of prints for comparison, to measure the amount of correspondence between prints, and to test the meaning of a given degree of correspondence.

    The recognition process involves basic principles of forensic examination: logical analysis of human behavior, physical examination of the area, surface property observation, field and laboratory processing, pattern enhancement, and information evaluation. 1 The method of choice should not be based on convenience or the preferences of the latent examiner. The selection of methods should rest on the nature of the surface, the type of matrix of the print, and the condition of the print. Chapter 4 covers all the major techniques currently available and the respective procedures for processing.
