Get to Know the CCPO – Forensic Facial Imaging Unit

ccpo22The Cumberland County Prosecutors Office Forensic Facial Imaging Unit is comprised of a  trained forensic artist on staff ready to assist the Cumberland County Prosecutor’s Office (CCPO), federal, state, county or local agencies with forensic facial imaging support. 

In September, 2010, Detective Ronald Henry of the CCPO attended and completed a three week FBI Forensic Facial Imaging course conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation at Quantico, Virginia. The course included training in composite drawing, age progression, facial reconstruction and post-mortem imaging.

Over the past five years, Detective Henry has worked with CCPO personnel and assisted local agencies by providing forensic facial imaging services; specifically, composite drawings.composite2

Composite Drawings are hand-drawn facial composite sketches prepared by experienced forensic artists and are valuable in providing useful images of unknown witnesses, victims or suspects related to a criminal investigation.

Detective Henry’s composite drawing expertise, combined with his 20 years of law enforcement experience, make him an invaluable asset to the CCPO and the many law enforcement agencies he assists throughout the year.
