Abstract
This paper aspires to assist those tasked with data generation and analysis for the purpose of the validation and/or\ud optimisation of trace evidence recovery. It does so via a detailed report of the authors’ approach to this problem in the\ud context of target fibre retrieval using self-adhesive tapes. Textile fibres can provide valuable evidence at both source\ud and activity levels. This ability stems from their near ubiquity in the man-made environment, their potential for high\ud levels of discrimination (especially when found in combination) and their reproducible transfer and persistence\ud behaviours. To realise this value for the criminal justice syste...
