  48. av are among the most valuable types of physical evidence and one of the most common types
    of evidence you will recover at a crime scene. Although generally invisible to the naked eye, latent prints result
    from body residues left behind when the friction ridges of the hands or feet make contact with a surface.
  49. aw 1. Wear gloves to avoid contaminating the area with your own fingerprints. Be careful not to wipe possible
    prints off the surface.
    2. Hold a flashlight at an angle, and look for obvious signs of a latent print.
    3. Take your brush and lightly dab into the powder once you find a target area.
    4. Tap and twirl the excess powder off the brush in the jar of powder. Use it sparingly because it tends to
    get on everything. It is better to use too little than too much.
    5. Lightly brush from side to side, or swirl the brush, on the target area. If the powder adhered to the print
    is too thick, brush off the excess powder with a clean brush and adjust the amount of powder.
    6. When you find a print, apply the tape in the following manner:
    a. Place a suitable fingerprint card on a flat surface nearby so that it is ready for the print you lift with
    the tape.
    b. Turn under the end of the lifting tape to form a tab.
    c. Extend the tape to a distance long enough to cover the print.
    d. Place the rolled end of the tape just above the latent print, but keep it off the print.
    e. Make sure that you do not trap foreign matter or air bubbles under the tape.
    f. Smooth from the tabbed end of the tape back toward the rolled end or vice versa. Use your finger,
    pen, or another object to smooth out the tape and release any trapped air. It is the same basic
    process as putting a decal on a window. With time and practice, you will develop your own
    technique for applying the tape.
    7. Slowly lift the tape containing the developed prints from both ends, being careful not to touch the tape
    to another surface, such as your gloves.
    8. Carefully place the tape on the fingerprint card in the same way that you placed the tape over the latent
    print. Place the print in the designated place on the correct side of the card.
    9. On the back of the fingerprint print card, record the date, case number, the location within the crime
    scene where you retrieved the fingerprint and any other information your agency's policies and
    procedures require. Be careful not to damage the print.
    10. Follow your agency policies and procedures to submit print evidence.
  50. ax any ammunition.
