Multi-day webinars offered by Evolve Forensics:
Taking ACE-V to the Next Level
Landmark-Based Morphometrics: A New Approach to Friction Ridge Examinations
Alice leads participants through an exciting new approach that is easily incorporated into existing ACE-V frameworks. This new approach introduces specific language to describe the features of the skin, the morphometric attributes of each feature, the expected variation of each feature within the population (establishes usefulness for search parameters and source conclusions), and common causes for variation in appearance of each feature (establishes the examiner’s tolerances for differences between two impressions from the same source). Participants will be shown how feature attribute tables and distortion tables can be immediately deployed for casework. Watch for Alice’s article on this topic, “Features of the Friction Ridge Skin: Attributes, Diagnosticity, and Limitations” in the first edition of the JFI (Journal of Forensic Identification) in 2022!

Forensic evidence plays a key role in decisions throughout the criminal justice process. Forensic evidence however, does not speak for itself. It requires the mind and the voice of the practitioner to interpret and present the evidence to decision makers. Evolve Forensics promotes the integrity of the interpretation and presentation of forensic evidence by broadening the minds and strengthening the voices of practitioners.
