Specialized Video and Image Analysis
Forensic image analysis includes the examination, evaluation, analysis, enhancement, authentication, comparison, and measurement of photographs to determine if they are what they purport to be, if they depict real events, and whether or not they have been altered. Our expert analyzes a person or object in a photo to another to determine if they are the same, different, or have common characteristics. This may include comparisons of people, clothing, or vehicles involved in crimes or accidents, or other objects of evidence in photographs, etc.
Crime Scene Analysis and Review consists of the complete review of reports, photographs and diagrams to ascertain whether the correct forensic and technical principles have been applied while processing the scene and any evidence related to the scene. Some of the technical specialties our experts review are the crime scene photography, evidence collection, latent evidence, ballistics, and bloodspatter evidence in order to correctly reconstruct the crime scene, This would not imply that the crime scene processing, evidence collection, or analysis have not been correctly executed, but may not have been completely examined, incorrectly identified, or complete laboratory testing has not been undertaken, Crime Scene investigation is not only about the inclusion of a person or suspect but the exclusion of a person or potential subject of interest. This analytical review of your client’s case can reveal facts that may be relevant to your case litigation.
Latent Fingerprint Processing and Analysis is the detection, collection, preservation, analysis and presentation in court of fingerprint evidence in cases of homicide, arson, rape, robbery, various other major crimes and vehicular death. Fingerprints can be one of the best forms of evidence linking a person to a particular item of evidence or crime scene. We can provide expert latent fingerprint processing utilizing the latest methods, along with comparison and identification of unknown fingerprints to known fingerprints not only in crime scene investigations but also in other types of cases.
Fingerprints can be found in three different forms:
- Latent fingerprints are those that are not readily visible without some sort of processing. Processing can include the application of powders, or the use of chemicals or visualization of light energy.
- Patent fingerprints are those that are readily visible without any enhancement. These prints can include ones in blood, grease, or oil. Patent prints are generally documented through photography.
- Plastic prints are three-dimensional impressions in substances such as putty, soap, or a soft ply able compound.
