Can You ID.me Washington State website proves fruitful for Clarkston Police

Can You ID.me Washington State website proves fruitful for Clarkston Police
CLARKSTON, WA - Just mere days after the Clarkston Police Department starting using the "Can You ID me" website, two suspects are positively identified by the public.

Canyouidme.com is a collaborative website used by police departments across the State of Washington. They post pictures of suspects or people wanted for questioning in hopes that locals can identify them.

Sergeant Josh Daniel said they posted two different cases to the site last week. Within 24-hours of posting the pictures, they arrested a man the police department had been trying to identify for almost two months.

"When we posted our second case, it had only been up for half-an-hour and we received several phone calls and a couple of emails about that person and we were able to identify him," said Daniel.

Daniel said they are in the process of adding more cases to the website. He said they're focusing on using the site as an investigative tool to catch people committing serious crimes.
