ForensicAre you a fan of TV channel Investigation Discovery and shows such as Forensic Files? Are you interested in how police solve missing person cases? If so, plan on attending this program when Michigan State Police detective sergeant Sarah Krebs joins us to discuss her work as a forensic artist.

Forensic art is any art that aids in the apprehension or conviction of a criminal offender or helps identify unknown deceased persons.  Detective Krebs will  explain how her evidence-based drawings and three-dimensional reconstructions aid in the investigation of unidentified remains, the apprehension of suspects, and the resolution of missing person cases.

Please join us for this fascinating look at police work! This event will take place in the conference room outside of the Civic Center Library. To register, call 586.574.4564.
