Biometrics in forensic investigations

Dr Aldo Mattei
Carabinieri, Latent Print Unit at Forensic Lab, Italy

In the first part, the lecture will explain from the theoretical point of view the relevance of biometrics in the forensic field and the crucial role biometrics play in the investigation. All different kind of biometrics will be described, such as strong and soft biometrics. Moreover, the course will deal with the main techniques to recover biometrics like fingerprints, DNA and face from the crime scene. Some practical examples will be given, and the students will be able themselves to try on the field some of the techniques.

In the class we will simulate a crime scene and the attendees will be in charge to collect biometrics. The usefulness of biometrics will be described from investigators' side.

After the practical session a glance at the biometric technologies and their integration in the investigative and intelligence process will be given. The way to combine different biometric information will be presented as well.

In the last part of the lecture we will discuss how to present biometrics in court and how to express scientifically our findings to the judge or to the jury.
