I do not know where you might find support for that argument, but I would like a private office. The general tendency seems to involve giving LP Examiners about 100 sq. ft. of space just for their administrative work (in addition to about 10 feet of bench space in another part of the lab for evidence exams). Because it's much cheaper than offices and gives some privacy, cubicles are the normal way to fulfill the 100 sq. ft. of work space per LP Examiner.
Lab safety nowadays supports keeping evidence exam and administrative areas separate.
Please see what's written at http://www.ncjrs.org/pdffiles/168106.pdf,
beginning at the bottom of page 29 where it talks about LP Examiners. You can also do a search of the entire document for other LP related topics.

Does anyone have any suggestions on where I can get info that could help us justify why private offices are more conducive to fingerprint examinations than open office space. We are in the process of designing a new building for our Crime Scene Section and our Fingerprint Section. We in the fingerprint section do no processing, for the street cops. The crime scene sections do that. We do AFIS, latent comparisons and ten print entry. We are not ASCLD certified either and don't expect to be since we are not considered a lab, etc. But I suspect someday in the future we will also get wrapped up in that too (years to come?). Any thoughts would be appreciated.
