Previous research material focuses on the examination of fingerprints and the permeability of fingerprints. However, the research is lacking in developing or enhancing these key pieces of evidence. We will focus on their reliability and validity in the field of crime scene investigation. This area of research is important because according to the PCAST report, released in 2016 on Forensic Science, more black box studies need to be conducted to improve the validity of latent fingerprint examination. The overarching goal of this roundtable is to consider enhanced research practices and expand the current knowledge.
