We have a professional journal, where there once was a newsletter, and in that journal we are seeing open discussions, new ideas, frequent consensus, and occasional controversy. These are all exceptionally good things, hallmarks of an ethical and open profession. As we progress into this next century, we also face two substantial challenges.

The challenge is to recognize and appreciate this newfound scrutiny, to grow with it, and to help find our new place within it.
As recently as 1977, a senior police officer at New Scotland Yard told me firmly that Faulds was a charlatan. Frederick Cherrill was the senior officer in charge of the New Scotland Yard Fingerprint Bureau for many years and was a hard-working and skilled fingerprint expert, visiting scenes and making identifications in major crimes even when of senior rank. However, in his Cherrill of the Yard (1955), he does not even mention Faulds in his chapter on the history of fingerprints. However, a year previously in The Fingerprint System at New Scotland Yard (1954), he wrote the following on page 6: The value of Henry Faulds’ (1843–1930) contribution to fingerprint science has been much discussed, but it is beyond question that Herschel was in the field many years before Faulds; in fact there is incontrovertible proof that Herschel was experimenting with finger, palm and sole prints when Faulds was but 16 years old.
1). Recognition and Examination Recognition of the areas where one is most likely to find latent prints is probably the most important step in the examination of latent print evidence. © 2001 by CRC Press LLC 0923Ch02Frame Page 43 Monday, May 14, 2001 1:31 PM Without it, no amount of further laboratory examination or automated fingerprint identification systems (AFIS) searches are likely to shed much light on the case, with regard to fingerprint evidence. If crucial latent print evidence is not recognized, developed, collected, and preserved, it will be lost, and the potential important links between a suspect and a crime may never be known or established.
