As in every line of work, having the proper tools is necessary. When it comes to lifting latent fingerprints, it is important to have a good powder and equally reliable brush. Latent prints are delicate, and may be unforgiving. Meaning, once you lift it, it’s gone.
Every product at Taction USA was designed by a law enforcement professional who knows what is needed in the field. There is nothing worse then being at a crime scene and not having all of the tools you need, or having tools that don’t work well.
We all know a little powder goes a long way and the right brush and tape will allow you to lift a latent fingerprint with ease. By including hinge lifters in your fingerprint kit you have one less item to think about carrying. A hinge lifter includes adhesive and a cardboard backing so you can lift a fingerprint quickly and easily.
The number of cases solved by matching a latent fingerprint from a crime scene is in the thousands. Make sure you have the tools you need to succeed!
