Prof. Wolfe presents at National Institute of Justice/FBI conference

Prof. James Wolfe, Justice Center adjunct faculty, will make a presentation at the Impression and Pattern Evidence Symposium, August 2-5, 2010 in Clearwater, FL. His presentation is titled "Innovative Techniques for Collecting Snow Impression Evidence."

The presentation will take a look at techniques Prof. Wolfe has developed and/or implemented in Alaska for evaluating, documenting, and collecting snow impression evidence at crime scenes. This type of evidence includes impressions from shoes, vehicle tires, ATV tires, snowmachines, and airplane skis.

This event is co-sponsored by the National Institute of Justice, the Bureau of Justice Assistance, and the FBI Laboratory Division. The symposium is specifically designed to bring together practitioners and researchers to enhance information-sharing and promote collaboration among the impression and pattern evidence, law enforcement, and legal communities. In addition, the symposium will provide unique educational opportunities for impression and pattern evidence examiners.
