SEARCH is getting ready to participate in the 28th annual San Diego International Conference on Child and Family Maltreatment. The six-day event is presented by the Chadwick Center for Children and Families at Rady Children's Hospital in San Diego and takes place January 26-31, 2014.

Over 1,800 practitioners are expected to attend the event, and they will be offered workshops and training that focus on best practices for investigating child and family physical and sexual violence.

SEARCH is a conference collaborator for this event, and three instructors from the High-Tech Crime Training Services team will be presenting.

Justin Fitzsimmons, who manages the team, will share his legal perspective in three different sessions: Digital Evidence in Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking Cases; Digital Evidence and Child Abuse Cases: Authentication, Hearsay and Best Evidence Rules; and the Ethics of Social Media: Can I Post That?

Lauren Wagner and Chris Armstrong, both High-Tech Crime Training Specialists at SEARCH, will present three workshops that are intended to teach investigators how to be more efficient in their Internet searches and how to capture evidence in the field by using portable apps.
