Abstract
The FRStat is a tool designed to help quantify the strength of fingerprint evidence. Following lengthy development and validation with assistance from CSAFE and NIST, in 2017 the FRStat was implemented at the USACIL. FRStat is now freely available and publicly accessible. This presentation provides a high-level introduction and overview of FRStat: what it is, how it works, and how it can be used operationally to augment expert opinion with statistical support.
