For today's *Forensic Science Week* feature, check out our LATENTS UNIT :A latent print is an impression of fingers or palms that have been transferred to a surface. The permanent and unique arrangement of the prints features allows for a certified latent examiner to make an identification of an individual to that print. Our amazing latent examiners utilize a variety of techniques in-house to develop prints on items of evidentiary value in an attempt to identify them to individuals that may be connected to a crime scene. Our Latents Unit here is made up of five certified examiners, all of which have undergone extensive training in this specialty of forensic science. The examiners have a very tedious, yet important job here at LCSO. They spend countless hours working tirelessly behind the scenes to assist deputies and detectives with a wide range of criminal investigations.
