Smith & Wesson Advanced Technologies, a corporate cousin of the 151-year-old handgun maker Smith & Wesson, today launched the first Web-based facial composite sketch tool for law enforcement agencies. Called Identi-Kit.NET, it gives law enforcement agencies the ability to produce a sketch instantly and transmit it immediately to other law enforcement agencies anywhere in the world. Here’s an example of a wanted poster it produced.
