Out of several forensic investigative techniques, there is one new and emerging method that very few are aware of. And that is from a police sketch artist. These sketch artists play a crucial role in narrowing down a suspect by creating portraits based on the memory of an eyewitness.

In a forensic context, these artists interview victims and eyewitnesses to create images of potential suspects for conviction purposes. These sketches also prove helpful in cases where there is a lack of evidence at the crime scene. Nowadays, along with manual skills, it is preferred that sketch artists also know how to create images using specialized composite facial imaging software and should also be well versed in using various digital devices like laptops, tablets, graphic software, etc.

In this webinar on "The Role of Police Sketch Artists in Criminal Investigations", our esteemed speaker, Michael W. Streed, will discuss the sketch of facial composites with the digital method, 3D skull modeling, remote sketch interviews, post-mortem image creation, skills forensic facial sketch artists must possess beyond drawing, facial reconstruction techniques, the role of sketch artists in investigations, and forensic artistry in law enforcement.
