        SciGirls | Print Hints

        Investigators collect shoe prints from a crime scene to make comparisons with patterns on the sole of a suspect's shoe. Shoe prints can also help determine the entrance or exit point at a crime scene, the direction of travel, or how the suspect was moving (running, limping, etc.) In other fields, trackers and biologists use animal footprints to learn where an animal has been to determine patterns of behavior.
