I do think ‘false positives’ have been eradicated from police crime lab vernacular.
This FSI article went after “false negatives’ as they say their literature is all about ‘individuation.’ Seems a bit non-sequitor to me as their study is in that very venue. Must be fingerprint person slang for “identifying one person in the entire world’ which the fingerprinters do for a living.
At any rate, this is some research about fingerprint examiners and fingerprint features that ‘might’ contribute to eliminating the actual perp. (abstract only).
I wonder how well distributed this journal is within law enforcement labs.
