White Box Latent Print Examiner Study, conducted by the FBI Laboratory and Noblis

We are requesting participation in the White Box Latent Print Examiner Study, conducted by the FBI Laboratory and Noblis. This study is a follow-on to the Black Box Study performed two years ago. The purpose of the White Box study is to characterize what constitutes sufficient quantity and quality of features to support analysis (value) determinations and comparison/evaluation determinations. (Details here)

Participation in the White box study is open to practicing latent fingerprint examiners. If you are interesting in participating in the White Box Study, please reply to this email or contact whitebox@noblis.org. Please forward to latent fingerprint examiner colleagues who may be interested in participating.

Senate Hearing Webcast on "Turning the Investigation on the Science of Forensics"

The U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation announced today a full committee hearing on advancing the science of forensics. While the criminal justice system relies heavily on forensic science to identify and prosecute criminals, many forensic tests lack scientific validation. The hearing will examine the science of forensic disciplines, the need for scientific research and enforceable national standards, and other challenges faced by the forensic science community. (Hearing actually begins at 18:40)
