Personal Identification Through Fingerprints

Surinder Nath (Author)
Synopsis Fingerprints evidence is perhaps the most affirmative exploratory means for personal identification. Fingerprints are formed before birth during the second trimester and by the time a child is born the fingerprints are already present. Two fingerprints reveal plentiful variations with regard to the ridge characteristics that are positioned all around the print area of a fingerprint at definite locations. Fingerprints are never identical. This book provides information pertaining to the history of fingerprints and their probable use in identification, biological principles concerning formation and distinctiveness of fingerprints. It also describes the characteristics and pattern types of fingerprints, highlighting the ten-digit and single digit classifications of fingerprints for maintenance of records. The book will be useful to policy officers, lawyers, researchers and students working or studying to acquire knowledge of fingerprints.
