In police investigations, what is the difference between "suspect" and "person of interest"?

Police officials say a suspect is someone law enforcement officials believe to be involved in the crime. A person of interest is someone who may have information related to the crime, or is involved in an investigation but who has not been arrested or charged with a crime.
