SEARCH Offers Advanced Skills as a Training Partner at Four Internet Crimes Against Children Regional Trainings
As a training partner for the national ICAC Task Force Program, SEARCH staff is presenting at four regional law enforcement training events in 2014, which are geared to law enforcement and social services professionals who work to protect children from online exploitation.
Each three-day training event consists of lecture tracks and hands-on computer laboratory workshops. SEARCH High-Tech Crime Training Services staff has helped to develop training curriculum for these events and will deliver lectures and workshops at all four locations.
The first event was held in early February in Garden Grove, California.
Every two years since 1989, SEARCH has worked with the Bureau of Justice Statistics to survey the state central repositories of criminal history records for an in-depth look into their systems and operations.
The most recent survey report, Survey of State Criminal History Information Systems, 2012, was recently released. In it, authors Owen Greenspan and Dennis DeBacco of SEARCH offer readers a glimpse into the kinds of information stored in these systems, and how it’s disseminated and used.
Besides raw numbers that show how many records exist, the report also explores the types of information states collect, how they get it, and the level of automation involved.
