McKie TV show ace is probed.
Gary Dempster claimed in BBC's Frontline Scotland last week, the Scottish Criminal Records Office "manipulated evidence" at her trial in 1999.
The ex-policewoman was wrongly accused of leaving her fingerprints at a murder scene in 1997. She was later acquitted.
Grampian deputy chief constable Patrick Shearer said in a letter to the fingerprint expert the probe would "establish whether you committed any disciplinary offences".
SNP MSP Nicola Sturgeon said the probe, begun after an SCRO complaint, broke rules allowing experts to "challenge the accuracy" of staff work.
