Investigators often call upon forensic artists to assist them during criminal cases. Especially, when the only available evidence is an eyewitness description.
To increase their opportunity for success, the forensic artist must carefully evaluate and interview the eyewitness to create the ‘perfect’ image from their ‘imperfect’ memory.
