DHSPD Crime Scene Technician Terry Sherman received the “Golden Bear Award” for the seventh year in a row for his success in gathering field evidence by use of fingerprints in apprehension of criminals. According to Riverside County Sheriff’s Department Lieutenant Scott Madden who presented the award, there are many millions of fingerprints on file through the state and federal data bases. Running a fingerprint for a match only takes 30 seconds to two minutes.
