Massachusetts Attorney General Hosts Conference to Focus on Seizure and Analysis of Digital Evidence
The SEARCH High-Tech Crime Training Services team will be an integral part of the 2014 National Cyber Crime Conference, which takes place April 28–30 in Norwood, Massachusetts. The event is hosted by the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office, and is the only national conference of its kind to restrict attendance to national and international law enforcement agencies.
Law enforcement agencies face a continual struggle to keep up with changes in technology. For instance, often investigators don’t hear about a new piece of technology like a new chatting or picture-sharing app until it comes to them in a case.
The SEARCH High-Tech Crime Training Services team is gearing up to present at the 2014 Child Abuse and Family Violence Summit, April 22-25 in Portland, Oregon. The event is hosted by the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office Child Abuse Team and the Domestic Violence Enhanced Team (DVERT).
Known simply as the Summit, this event will bring together professionals working in the areas of investigations, interviewing, assessment, prosecution, and treatment of child abuse, neglect, and domestic violence. This multidisciplinary event is focused on collaboration and it will give these practitioners an opportunity to broaden their professional knowledge and gain an increased understanding of other agencies’ roles and responsibilities.
