Fingerprint service

Fingerprints have now been used for over a century by Police and Government agencies as an effective method for identifying individuals involved in criminal activity. Where cases presented to a court fail, it is invariably due to issues of continuity and administrative errors which cast doubt on the integrity of the exhibit and/or the witness presenting that evidence. Evidential can provide objective challenge in terms of reviewing fingerprint evidence and the processes and people that underpin that evidence.

testimonial

“Your work was to accurately reflect in an electronic presentation the technical evidence obtained from Prosecution witness telephone data in the context of factual events that took place. The presentations that you prepared for the Defence team were unable to be used in evidence because the Prosecution withdrew the charges against our client. However, your work showed in a devastating series of slides that the false statements made by those witnesses as to their whereabouts was contradicted by the telephone cellsite data.

I was very impressed by the quality of the work you produced for me which had the aim of saving a great deal of court time by using electronic means to represent the evidence.”
