2017 Children’s Justice Conference Features Social Media, Technology Sessions by SEARCH
Social media, social networking, and technology are the focus of SEARCH presentations and workshops this week at the 2017 Children’s Justice Conference. They are led by Justin Fitzsimmons, Program Manager of SEARCH High-Tech Crime Training Services.
The annual event, held April 11–12 in Bellevue, WA, is sponsored by the Children’s Justice Task Force of the Washington Department of Social & Health Services. It features more than 100 breakout sessions that offer intermediate and advanced specialized training from leaders in the field of child maltreatment, and provided to multiple disciplines in the child welfare and justice systems.
SEARCH is a contributor to this, the 25th annual Children’s Justice Conference. Mr. Fitzsimmons, a former prosecutor, is presenting on the following topics:
- Ethics and Technology: The Role of Social Media and Avoiding Ethical Dilemmas. This session describes the unique responsibilities of those in the medical, legal, law enforcement, victim services and advocacy fields in avoiding ethical pitfalls of social media use by professionals.
- Social Networking Investigations. This workshop demonstrates the usefulness of social networking sites to investigations, and teaches how to effectively search networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. It also covers techniques on capturing profiles for evidentiary purposes.
- Introduction to Technology-Facilitated Child Sexual Exploitation (TFCSE) and the Role of Technology in Human Trafficking. This session addresses the complex situations and cases that investigators and prosecutors will encounter in TFCSE cases, and the role technology plays in the exploitation, particularly in human trafficking of minors. It also addresses the types of evidence that may exist in cyberspace and the evidence-based practices for securing it.
