OrganizationSirchie - Command Every SceneStart Date 2/25/2019
Country United States of America End Date 3/1/2019
StateNorth Carolina
Meeting Information

Footwear impression evidence is the most overlooked evidence at crime scenes. Criminals will often wear gloves or wipe down objects that they touch at crime scenes but rarely do they remove their shoes or intentionally destroy the evidence left by their shoes. An article published in Evidence Technology Magazine stated that many European police agencies are reporting footwear evidence being collected in over 70% of their cases. This class will hopefully encourage crime scene examiners to be more diligent about detecting and recovering footwear impression evidence.

In this course, the student will get hands-on training for the proper pr...

Another type of staged scene encountered, but not well publicized,is "where the perpetrator changes elements of the scene to make a death appear to be a suicide or accidental in order to cover up a murder;thereby, altering the scene and often providing false statements in support of the altera...

Structure determination of molecules contained within unresolved complex mixtures represents an unsolved question that continues to challenge physical and analytical chemistry. Most naturally occurring systems can be characterised as complex mixtures. These can be broadly divided according to the molecular sizes of their constituents, into mixtures of small or large molecules. The focus of this Faraday Discussion will be on the former, while the latter such as biomacromolecules, industrial polymers, or solid matrices are outside of its scope as such. Nevertheless, the processes that are used in analysing the data originating from these st...
