Trace Evidence


Trace Evidence Section

The Trace Evidence Section is responsible for the analysis (investigative and comparative) of a wide variety of evidence types.  Analysts utilize state of the art microscopes and instrumentation to analyze trace materials, such as paint, glass, hairs, fibers and gunshot residue.  Additional evidence types include physical comparisons (jigsaw matches), analyzing fire debris for accelerants, and impression comparisons, including footwear and tire tracks.
