The SketchCop® Academy is the training platform for SketchCop®’s signature course – “Creating Digital Faces For Law Enforcement”. Our goal is to train the next generation of digital police sketch artists in the use of our SketchCop® Facial Composite System software app.

SketchCop® Academy courses are an excellent supplement for those looking for a new way to use their ‘art’ or add an ancillary skill to their forensic science or law enforcement career.

Traditional forensic artists may also find our training as a useful opportunity to enhance their skills.

All courses are taught by Forensic Facial Imaging Consultant & IAI Certified Forensic Artist Michael W. Streed.
