When there is high quality video available the police have a very good chance of identifying the person.
The people the police want to identify are not always wanted for something they may have done. There are occasions when the police want to speak to a person who they feel may have been a witness,

The Halton Regional Police Service Child Abuse and Sexual Assault Unit (CASA), is currently investigating a sexual assault that occurred in the evening of Canada Day, July 1, 2019. The female victim left “The COOP” restaurant located on Brant Street, just north of Lakeshore Road in Burlington, and accepted a ride with an unknown male party. The victim was sexually assaulted in the vehicle prior to being dropped off at her residence.

    Wow! That s scary. The “Coop” on Brant Street is often very noisy in the late evening. We have heard ladies yelling and screaming and have often called poli8ce to attend, not knowing if someone was just having fun or was in trouble. We will attempt to be more vigilant. Hope police find their witness!!

    Great, there’s a look at the perp’s car, perhaps if a description of the assailant was also provided it would go a long way in helping. Example: I know what my buddies cars look like, and the roads are just filled to the brim with them, but if I had a personal description, as well, and it matched up somewhat, that would go a long way to narrowing it down. I don’t get it.
