DETECT & EXAMINE: Shoeprints

 

Shoe prints and forensic footwear evidence located at the crime scene can provide excellent collaborative evidence when building a criminal case.

Shoe prints in dust are easily detected using low angle oblique illuminatiom which makes it far easier to pick out identifying features by greatly improving the prints contrast.

The make and model of a shoe or boot can be identified by its shoe print using the Foster + Freeman products SICAR 6 and SoleMate. Identifications can be made by full or partial prints and may also provides a link between multiple crimes.
