Former Detective Chief Inspector Steve Gaskin had many cases solved by fingerprint experts whilst in the Metropolitan Police. The study of fingerprints and their history is fascinating. It has led to the downfall of many seasoned criminals, such as the Great Train Robbers, and those involved in the Docklands bombing. The science has developed over the years from using black dusting powder to laser illumination.
During the session, Steve will deliver the following:-
· Short history of fingerprints
· The science explained
· You will take your fingerprints and dust for hidden marks!
· You will hear about several fingerprint cases which went to Bow Street Magistrates Court specifically the Air Raid Killer
· See how fingerprints appear in the natural world
· Q & A
Most of the session will be “hands-on” whilst learning the science of dactology!
Steve was a DCI in the Met, serving at busy police stations in the Metropolis. Notably, he spent a total of ten years investigating drug trafficking and the money generated from crime.
