Our Mission & Credo
The Vidocq Society is dedicated to dealing with long-unsolved murders and other major cases. The Vidocq credo is Veritas Veritatum - The Truth of Truths.
The Vidocq Society's 82 members (one for every year of Inspector Vidocq's life) come from 17 states and 11 other countries.
Members bring a broad array of forensic and other experience.
The Society chooses its cases carefully as we are limited in staff to handle recent increases in requests. We work closely with local investigators and prosecutors to help solve a death or homicide and bring perpetrators to justice. All work is done, at no cost to victim’s families or law enforcement, pro bono as part of the Society's commitment to public service.
