Composites

The face is the most distinctive and widely used key to a person’s identity. Facial composites are created from eyewitness descriptions of unidentified criminal suspects and aim to trigger recognition in members of the public.

I am experienced with composite software including EvoFIT, PROfit, E-FIT and EFIT-V as well as traditional and digital sketching.  I am trained in victim/witness interview tecnhiniques including the Cognitive Interview (CI) and Holistic Cognitive Interview (H-CI).

These composites were created for a research project.  Facial features from Samantha Steinberg's Facial Identification Catalogue were selected by witness-participants before being compiled and filtered to remove errors arising from innacuracies in witness-participants' descriptions.
