CSI UAE: Footprint soil types to bust crimes

Abu Dhabi Police has entered into an agreement with the Environment Agency-Abu Dhabi (EAAD) to use ?footprint soil types? classification database to help solve crime cases.

The MoU includes exchanging benefits of ?footprint soil types? and ?forensic evidence laboratory?. Abu Dhabi Police will take advantage of the ?footprint soil types? classification database of soil types in the UAE adopted by the EAAD.? This would allow forensic experts to uncover crimes by determining the location of a criminal act, and narrowing down locations to specific areas, in accordance with the nature and specifications of the soil.

The MoU also provides the EAAD with the opportunity to utilise forensic evidence laboratory in various available disciplines.
