There is a acute shortage of Skilled and Trained Forensic Science Experts in India, Almost all Courts are overloaded with pending cases. Forensic science is a highly remunerative career option, there is wide scope for consultancy work, jobs, own practice / freelancing work in Courts, Banks, Govt Firms, International Organizations, Corporates, Public Sector Organizations etc
In Jan-2021 Nagalakshmi college of science Stuents were visited the organization and knowledged about the Below topics.
1. Finger Prints
2. Identifying the Finger Prints
3. Introduction and Scopes About the Forensic
4.How to Collect the blood from Crime scene.
5.After that How to confirm those samples By primilinery and confirmatory test.
Why Fingerprint Identification?
Fingerprints offer a reliable means of personal identification. That is the essential explanation for fingerprints having replaced other methods of establishing the identities of persons reluctant to admit previous arrests.
The science of fingerprint identifications stands out among all other forensic sciences for many reasons, including the following:
Has served governments worldwide for over a century by providing accurate identification of persons. No two fingerprints have ever been found alike in many billions of human and automated computer comparisons. Fingerprints are the foundation for criminal history confirmation at police agencies worldwide.
Established the first forensic professional organization, the International Association for Identification (IAI), in 1915.
Established the first professional certification program for forensic scientists, the IAI's Certified Latent Print Examiner (CLPE) program in 1977. The fingerprint discipline has never claimed forensic fingerprint experts (latent print examiners) are infallible. For over four decades, the IAI's certification program has been issuing certification to those meeting stringent criteria and revoking the certification for errors (quality assurance problems) such as erroneous identifications.
Continues to expand as the primary method for accurately identifying persons in government record systems, with hundreds of thousands of persons added daily to fingerprint repositories worldwide.
For more than a century, has remained the most commonly used forensic evidence worldwide - in most jurisdictions fingerprint examination cases match or outnumber all other forensic examination casework combined. Fingerprints harvested from crime "scenes lead to more suspects and generate more evidence in court than all other forensic laboratory techniques combined.
Is relatively inexpensive for solving crime. Expense is an important factor because agencies must balance investigative resources to best satisfy timeliness and thoroughness, without sacrificing accuracy. For example, DNA is as ubiquitous as fingerprints at many crime scenes, but can cost 100 to 400 times more than fingerprint analysis for each specimen, and can require additional months or years before analysis is complete. Thus, while both fingerprints and DNA are typically harvested from serious crimes such as sexual assault and murder, fingerprints are often the primary evidence collected from lesser crimes such as burglaries and vehicle break-ins.
Other visible human characteristics, such as facial features, change considerably with age but fingerprints are relatively persistent. Barring injuries or surgery causing deep scarring, or diseases such as leprosy damaging the formative layers of friction ridge skin, finger and palm print features have never been shown to move about or change their unit relationship throughout the life of a person (and injuries, scarring and diseases tend to exhibit telltale indicators of unnatural change).
Domestic Violence Prevention
Child Sexual Abuse
These are some of the topics which mainly discussed and applied through some practical and real world investigations about the work and the detective’s life which gives and motivates the student to learn and gain more knowledge in the field work before they stepping out as a graduate.
By appreciating this work from the Karunya University, they invited us for the Guest lecture for the students of Criminology department. And this guest lecture is especially for the fresh young minds of the department (first year students). This lecture is particularly about the Basics of Detective and how to learn the things new and adapt to this course, this refreshes and boost up the young minds to learn and understand the new things.
