Introduction to Creating Digital Faces for Law Enforcement - (4 hours)
Creating Digital Faces for Law Enforcement is our comprehensive forensic facial imaging training course.
This introductory course will familiarize students with forensic art, the ninth forensic science discipline officially recognized by the International Association for Identification.
The course is based upon the book – Creating Digital Faces for Law Enforcement (Elsevier/Academic Press) written by Michael W. Streed, your course instructor.
Michael is one of the world’s most experienced forensic artists and is the developer of SketchCop® Facial Composite System Software. He’s looking forward to introducing students to the following topics:
• What makes a good forensic artist?
• Suggested Materials to Make the Move from Pencils to Pixels.
• Why it’s important to know the human face.
• How to create the environment for a successful interview.
• Facial composite software versus traditional methods. Which is best?
• Case Study: The Abduction & Murder of Samantha Runnion - The Value of Using Child Witnesses to Create Facial Composites
• LIVE test interview – Demonstration of how a facial composite is created
We hope you are as excited about attending this course. I’m thrilled to be teaching it!
In the meantime, please enjoy a great summer. Stay safe, be well and as always, Keep on Sketching!
