Police Photofit workshop – Liverpool College are Regional Winners!

Have you ever wondered what sort of witness you might make if you were to observe a crime? Could you recall facial details and distinguishing features? This week, Chapter 9 pupils were given the incredibly unique opportunity of exploring forensic facial composite software, effectively used in real police investigations, to construct facial composites of offenders as observed by witnesses and victims of crime. After lessons in the features of computer software, the pupils were then surprised with news of a theft within the classroom by a recent female visitor, and then asked to use the software to create a photofit of the perpetrator. Competing against others schools in a North West heat, the winners of the closest photofit competition were two of our very own students – Tom C and Luca H, who both were awarded trophies to recognise their high level of technical skills.
