Latent Fingerprints





To adequately develop the latent prints at crime scenes, it is
necessary that the proper equipment be provided. This equipment
includes latent fingerprint powders, brushes, lifting tape,
fingerprint camera, searchlight, and scissors. All of this equipment
can be obtained from commercial fingerprint supply companies. Figure
419 shows some of the equipment used by the FBI. The techniques of
developing latent fingerprints and their uses are more fully explained
in the following chapters.

It is believed that by following the basic ideas outlined, the
officials of law enforcement agencies can be assured of best results
in establishing and maintaining a small identification bureau. For
further information, the Federal Bureau of Investigation will furnish
to duly constituted law enforcement officials any additional data
which may be of material assistance in the maintenance of such a
bureau.
