Suspect sketches for any agency, anywhere
New crime-solving tool from the nation’s largest online investigations system
Detectives across the U.S. have a new tool to add to their investigational arsenal, and it’s helping put a face on crooks. With LeadsOnline Sketches, detectives can access a professional, experienced forensic artist who will interview a witness anytime, anywhere, and then create a digital composite sketch of the suspect in time for the evening news.
Sometimes the only lead law enforcement has to follow about a suspect’s physical appearance is held captive in the witness’s memory, but through the use of advanced technology and digital art, detectives can now employ the skills of a forensic artist at a moment’s notice. Adding a forensic artist to the investigations team allows investigators to better identify and eliminate possible suspects and uncover vital details as well as empower the witness or victim who holds key information.
