The SketchCop® Online Academy is the official training provider for SketchCop®’s signature course – “Creating Digital Faces For Law Enforcement”. Our goal is to train the next generation of facial imaging technicians in the use of our SketchCop® Facial Composite System software and promote it to their respective law enforcement agencies.

Our online courses and workshops at The SketchCop® Online Academy 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 developed and taught by Forensic Facial Imaging Expert and IAI Certified Forensic Artist Michael W. Streed.

He is also the author of the course textbook – Creating Digital Faces For Law Enforcement. (Elseviere/Academic Press 2017)
