What do they call the people that collect and dust for fingerprints in a crime scene?
Generically, they are referred to as Forensic Evidence Technicians, but their actual job titles can depend on the what their employing agency chooses to call them. (e.g.- Fingerprint technicians - Evidence Technicians - Crime Scene Search Technicians - Etc).
The crime scene investigators use the biotechnology and genetis technology for solving their case. They collect every sample from the crime scene and perform the laboratory tests on it which gives them clue about what would have happened on the crime scene and then DNA and the fingerprints are used to prove the identity of the person associated with crime scene
Fingerprint ridges differ from person-to-person, so if an offender were to touch a window at a crime scene, those fingerprints could (potentially) be traced back to him. That being said, a majority of fingerprints are only partial prints, and generally don't give as much information as crime shows like to believe.

It is strong physical evidence. It places the person at the crime scene. The person may have been identified through fingerprint evidence and that may be the only way to link the person to the crime scene. Through fingerprints you are able to determine a person's identity. Eye-witnesses can be wrong, fingerprints don't lie.
