To: All Connecticut Law Enforcement Agencies
In an effort to expedite latent print examination returns, the forensic lab will now accept via email (for pre-screening purposes), latent prints developed at crime scenes that are of questionable quality. These are the cases where the investigator is not sure if the latent print that was developed should be discarded as worthless or sent to the lab for further analysis. By being able to screen and sort out latent impressions of no value prior to laboratory submission the following will be accomplished:
The investigator will receive an immediate decision as to the value of a questionable latent print. The program goal is a response time of 2-hours and not more than 24-hours.
Laboratory evidence intake time will be reduced by eliminating the submission of worthless latent prints.
Latent print examiner resources will be maximized by alleviating unnecessary paperwork.
A briefing will be held at the Forensic Lab Auditorium to explain how the program will work.
It is requested that a least one representative from each agency who is proficient in fingerprint processing and digital photography attend.
Please RSVP John Brunetti @ 203-694-6558 or email@example.com to reserve a seat.
