The first step in any criminal investigation is to preserve and collect all evidence. This process could take the form of reconstructing crime scenes, composite sketches created from witness descriptions, or even the reconstruction of a suspect’s physical features derived from newly discovered skeletal remains. These tasks cannot be done without Forensic Artists. Join the National Law Enforcement Museum in a conversation with highly trained artists who combine scientific knowledge with artistic talent to assist law enforcement in bringing criminals to justice.
