launches new website for its 8th Anniversary

Sunday, August 19, 2018 is Washington State’s most comprehensive unknown subject identification site.

It was created in 2010 by Det. Tony Matthews of the Lake Forest Park Police, and started with five participating police detectives. There are now more than 300 Washington state investigators signed up on the website from 96 different police agencies.

The purpose of this program is to provide one location where Washington state detectives and investigators can post photographs of unknown subjects that can be reviewed by the public and, hopefully, identified.

Members of the public can submit names and information about the people in the photographs directly to the investigating detectives.

The number of subjects identified on now tops 390!
