    This is a compelling group of stories of how one cop doing his job hunting down criminals one sketch at a time He gives such compassion not only to his drawings but to the victims treating each one as if they were the first Giving them what the need to feel comfortable to give him the story as he draws what they see in their mind At times not everyone is truthful as you will read it is part of his job to find every little detail even those that are not telling the truth so they can find the right person who did the crime No one is prefect as you will see inside these pages from the victim to the cops who put the bad guys away We all make mistakes it is really painful when at times you make a big one and put the wrong one behind bars Having a drawing help put the write one away along with today s DNA which they did not have years ago Mr Gauffi did a wonderful job of narration it was read in one voice which would have been the voice of the author That is expect since there really isn t any characters this is a story of facts of thi...

    GAB This is an excellent read, covering the growth of the contribution of the police sketch artist in the solving of crimes over the last 35 years in the life of Policeman Streed Michael W Streed began life imagining a career working at Walt Disney Studios, but found his niche as a policeman and sketch cop in southern California and Balti Early days he was used on only the most horrendous crimes, loaned to various cop shops around the area in Orange, Riverside and other counties in SoCa As his talent for teasing the memories necessary to make a working likeness of the bad guys from frightened witnesses, his reputation grew as well Drawing the likeness of the perpetrator of the crime is only possible when you can get past their fear and see through the eyes of the witness Eventually he spent most of his time working with witnesses, helping train other sketch cops in the art of the interview, and perfecting software to help every cop shop devel...
