Analysis of fingerprints is probably the most well known use of forensic science. Each fingertip has a pattern of fine skin ridges that are slightly different for every person,
Fingerprints can be detected on a vast range of different surfaces using a variety of techniques. The police keep a huge national database of prints taken from charged criminals. New prints are taken by a laser-scanning procedure, where the hand is placed on a flat glass plate, and its print is stored and compared to other prints electronically.
