On June 30, the Country Hearts 4-H club hosted their annual day camp. Katelyn Meyer and Rebecca Giles-Vincent from the Johnson County Crime Lab gave a presentation about their line of work.
Club members learned that everyone has unique fingerprint patterns, and that fingerprints actually develop on our hands before we are born. The deputies told us how they use that information to analyze crime scenes and solve different cases. Rebecca showed us how to print our fingerprints using magnetic sand, and Katelyn showed us how to identify the whole print by only using a part of one. We had a great time, and our club is very appreciative to the Sheriff’s Department and especially the crime lab for making this year’s day camp so special.
