WEST MILFORD —The Junior Girl Scouts of Troop #94899 recently invited Commander Scott Stillman with the Passaic County Sheriff's Office to come and speak to them about fingerprinting as part of their work on the Junior Detective Badge.

Stillman explained how fingerprinting has changed over the years and how law enforcement agencies use the information obtained through fingerprints.

He then fingerprinted each of the girls so that their parents have it for their records. While Commander Stillman was fingerprinting, the other girls worked on different parts of the badge: using baking soda or lemon juice to write a secret message, creating Morse Code name necklaces, writing secret messages using a decoder that they created themselves, and looking at different kinds of fabrics under a microscope.
