Composite Recommendations The composite production begins with an interview of the witness by a trained composite system operator or sketch artist (depending on the system). The recommendations made in this chapter will pertain to the function of the composite, the training of the operator, the interview process, the post-composite role of the witness and the special procedures for cases with multiple witnesses. The first recommendation refers to the probative value of a composite. It is essential to understand that similarity to a composite is not strong evidence of guilt when presented in a court of law (Association of Chief Police Officers of England, Wales and Northern Ireland, 2003).

To follow the recommendations mentioned above (and in official guidance documents) on the interviewing of vulnerable (alleged) victims does require proper understanding of the challenges interviewers face.
