A dozen law enforcement professionals from around the world recently visited USF to take part in an annual workshop that teaches them how to use forensic imaging tools, like facial reconstruction and age progression, to help identify suspects and find missing people. We show you some of the methods they learned on University Beat on WUSF TV.
