If It Works for Companies, Should it Work for Cops?

Wooster Collective points to Scotland's use of a giant sized projected image of a woman who was recently murdered....



The haunting image is being projected on an abandoned row of buildings in Glasgow in hopes of obtaining information that might lead police to the woman's killer.

Of all the billboards we have lining our roadways, I wonder how this type of tactic would benefit our own unsolved crime rate in North America. Companies could sponsor these boards, if it came down to money. Certainly the "milk carton / missing children" campaign was successful.

What do you think?
