about

Orange Police Sergeant (Ret.) Michael W. Streed is “The SketchCop.” He’s a one-of-a-kind crime fighter who’s frequently called into action by police departments seeking help solving their most difficult cases.

For over three decades, Michael has provided signature images for the country’s most notorious murders, rapes, and kidnappings, including the kidnapping and murder of five-year-old Samantha Runnion, as well as the Baton Rouge Serial Killer.

The SketchCop has fought crime, coast-to-coast, from Los Angeles to Baltimore, Salt Lake City to Baton Rouge. Along the way, he has papered the walls of police squad rooms with sketches of their city’s most dangerous criminals.

In this collection of true crime stories, Michael shares cases from his own portfolio. He describes how he connects with, and empowers, courageous victims and eyewitnesses, from all walks of life. Using their descriptions, the author creates life-like sketches of the assailants with an accuracy that has led to quick identifications and captures.

SketchCop – Drawing A Line Against Crime provides readers a glimpse at some of Michael W. Streed’s career cases and the significant role he plays in the criminal justice system.

“Mike Streed is a cop – and one of California’s most vital artists…a standout in his field!“– Orange Coast Magazine, Orange County, CA

“SketchCop puts the entire investigation of my daughter’s murder in a context rarely available to the public.  Sarah, her friend, will be forever remembered for her unbelievable courage.  The two of you clearly made a wonderful team as you worked together to make sure the man who killed Samantha could never hurt another child.“– Erin Runnion, Samantha’s mother and Founder – The ‘Joyful Child Foundation’

“SketchCop is a timely, compelling commentary on the power and importance of forensic art.  Mike Streed’s work has been key to identifying many offenders.  He has also been a great ally of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and this book brings the complex, difficult cases he has worked to life.“–Ernie Allen, Former President – National Center for Missing and Exploited Children

“As insightful a read as it is fascinating, written by an expert who is in the know. A must-read for true crime fans and those interested in the fascinating world of real police work.” — Gary C. King, author of Blood Lust and Driven to Kill
