SketchCop® Solutions has teamed with Sherlock Institute of Forensic Science India to establish India’s first forensic facial imaging laboratory. Our industry-leading laboratory is well-equipped to play a significant role in how Indian law enforcement and select organizations utilize modern forensic facial imaging technology to combat crime and identify dangerous criminals.
The laboratory will be directed by (Ret.) Police Sergeant Michael W. Streed, CFA. Michael is a Certified Forensic Artist and is one of the world’s most experienced forensic facial imaging experts. In addition to his extensive law enforcement background, he is also an author, trainer and belongs to several international forensic and investigative organizations.
Because crime does not recognize borders, we invite other global law enforcement and select organizations, outside of India, to contact us with their forensic facial imaging requests.
After reviewing our services, we hope that you’ll consider making our forensic facial imaging laboratory an important part of your investigative strategy.
We promote a digital workflow solution to process visual evidence. This includes working with eyewitnesses to create suspect images using digital tools. While there are forensic organizations that continue to work towards creating a unified set of standards and guidelines for processing forensic facial images; much of the work remains subjective and is guided by the experience and ethics of the forensic facial imaging expert.
Our laboratory treats every image and digital facial composite as a traditional piece of evidence, just like any law enforcement professional would treat a fingerprint, biological sample, toolmark, tire/shoe print, etc.
The goal of our forensic facial imaging laboratory is to help law enforcement investigators reduce their investigative cycle times. To accomplish our goal requires that we become part of a multi-disciplinary investigative team that adheres to a rigorous set of standards as they are developed by professional forensic organizations and the legal community.
We have equipped our laboratory with cutting-edge technology to help ensure the best possible outcome for your investigation.
