Chattanooga, Tennessee is known for its beautiful scenery, friendly people, and rich history. But like any city, it also has its fair share of crime. One case that had been unsolved for years was finally cracked thanks to the use of a facial composite created using The Facial Composite Software, FACES.

For those who may not be familiar, a facial composite is a composite image created by a witness or victim of a crime to help identify a suspect. The Facial Composite Software, FACES, is a computer-based program that allows users to create a composite image by selecting different facial features from a database of pre-existing images. The program then combines these features to create a composite image that can be used to help identify a suspect.

The case in question was a string of burglaries that had been happening in Chattanooga for several years. Despite numerous leads and suspects, the police were unable to catch the perpetrator. That was until a witness to one of the burglaries was able to provide a detailed description of the suspect. The police department then used FACES to create a composite image of the suspect based on the witness's description.

The composite image was then distributed to the public, and within a few days, a tip came in identifying the suspect as a local man who had been arrested for similar crimes in the past. The police were able to link him to the burglaries through DNA evidence and he was finally brought to justice.

This case is just one example of how powerful a tool facial composite software can be in solving crimes. It is important for law enforcement officials to be trained and proficient in using these programs to help bring criminals to justice. The Facial Composite Certification Program on provides training and certification for law enforcement officials on the use of FACES and other facial composite software.

We encourage everyone in the Chattanooga area to sign up for the certificate course on and to do their part in combating crime in our community. Together, we can make our city a safer place for all.
