Forensic Trace as a Condition of Combating Threats Related to Criminal Activities
Languages of publication
Nowadays, socially harmful (criminal) acts are often carried out, which are punishable by a certain penalty and their detection poses a major challenge to the services and the wider justice system. The analysis of such acts requires a continuous improvement of knowledge of the methods used by the perpetrators, as well as the ways in which traces are detected and secured, which can then be used to identify the perpetrator. In each forensic trace there is a coded lot of information, often unavailable without the use of special thought and research processes. The publication defines forensic traces, presents their division, functions, and discusses ways to reveal and secure such traces. It also points to the impact of crime detection on citizens’ sense of security, as a result of awareness that the perpetrator of the crime will be punished and that law enforcement, using the latest developments in science and technology, are working increasingly more efficiently.
