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.

Our courses are an excellent supplement for those who want to apply their art skills toward or add an ancillary skill to their careers in law enforcement or forensics.

Experienced forensic artists may also attend our training as an opportunity to enhance their skills.

All courses are developed and taught by world-renowned Forensic Facial Imaging Expert and Certified Forensic Artist Michael W. Streed.
