The DME Resources Professional Community is a service provided by Larry A. Compton (d.b.a. Larry A. Compton, Spokane, WA - Federal EIN# 46-3092870 - A Veteran Owned Business registered with the WA Dept. of Veterans Affairs).

This members-only community is the evolution of my online DCCTV database launched over 20 years ago; as well as the original Forensic Multimedia Community,, which I publicly launched in January, 2008 and grew to serve over 1,500 verified members.

Together we've expedited tens of thousands of investigations throughout the world. Securely sharing information & solving problems together, all for FREE.

No ads, no invasive technologies to get you to click more, buy more or stay longer.


Membership IS NOT available to the general public. Larry A. Compton reserves the right to approve/deny any prospective member or to cancel any current member's account at any time, for any reason or no reason, without prior notice and without liability. Please read my website Terms of Use for complete details.
