OriginEdit

Dr. Edmond Locard (1877-1966) was a French criminologist, who's influence in forensic science and criminology earned him a reputation as "The Sherlock Holmes of France."

In 1910, Lyon police granted Locard the opportunity to begin the first police laboratory. During his time working there, Locard made great strides in dactylography, a study of fingerprints, and developed poroscopy, the study of fingerprint pores which leave fingerprints. His work is the basis for fingerprint identification today.

Locard is perhaps most well known for his formulation of the Locard Exchange Principle, which states that all objects, when they come in contact with each other, will either take or leave trace evidence of themselves.
