What’s Your Job? - Fingerprint Forensic Scientist

May 13, 02:37 AM

Stop! Don’t touch that non-porous surface! Tastebud Jen is a forensic scientist specializing in fingerprints (and other kinds of prints too, you barefoot murderous weirdo….). Have you ever wanted to know if there’s actually a program that takes a print and matches it with a nationwide database? How about burning off your fingerprints before you commit a crime; is that a thing? Are cotton gloves really better than latex for hiding your fingerprints? Kathleen and Bethany are asking Jen all of these burning questions and more!
