England Police Officer With Photographic Memory; Can Identify Pretty Much Anyone

They say he has an insane photographic memory and he is being honored for identifying nearly 250 suspects between 2008 and 2012. A Police Community Support Officer (PCSO), Andy Pope, 34 from England was given a "Putting The Public First" Award last week for recognizing a suspect in 2012 -a year after being shown the man's image, the Daily Mail reported. The "Memory Man" as he's come to be known, was able to memorize wanted fugitives' faces just from seeing them on closed circuit television (CCTV) footage, according to Birmingham mail.

"A lot of offenders do pass through the city at some point and when they do, I want to be able to recognize them, "Pope told the paper. "I get into work 30 minutes before my shift starts and scan police system to see if any new wanted faces have been added and i'll maybe have another look at lunch as a refresher"

In this year so far, Pope had already identified 67 suspects, according to the Daily mail.

"I don't think I've got any special gift, "he told the Birmingham Mail last year when he made headlines for his talent. "just a knack for remembering faces."
