On the record ... with Angel Reyes
As a detective for the DeKalb Police Department, Angel Reyes spends most of his time investigating crimes. But he also focuses on preventing crime, particularly the ever-changing crime of fraud.
“We hope that through education people will not become victimized,” Reyes said. “These scams have been going on for many, many years and they always have some sort of variation to make it new and let it work for a little while, and then when that’s run out the scammers will find a new way of doing it.”
Reyes, a lifelong doodler, is also the only police sketch artist in DeKalb County. He honed his skills with training from the FBI, and he is often loaned to other jurisdictions that do not have an officer with sketching skills. Police cannot arrest a subject solely because of a sketch, but sketches are often vital tools for identifying and questioning suspects.
