SEARCH High-Tech Crime Trainers Head to 2017 Conference on Crimes Against Women


The annual Conference on Crimes Against Women (CCAW) is the only national conference devoted to providing investigators, prosecutors, victims’ advocates, and other professionals with the strategies  and skills needed to successfully combat the many and varied forms of crimes against women.

SEARCH is a longtime supporter of CCAW and our High-Tech Crime Training Services team will be at the 12th annual CCAW May 22–25, 2017, in Dallas, once again offering practical instruction to these professionals through workshops and hands-on computer labs.

SEARCH joins other local and national leading experts in the field to offer best practice, cutting-edge training in identifying, investigating, and prosecuting violent crimes against women. Areas of expertise include domestic violence, human trafficking, stalking, sexual assault, campus safety, and digital investigations. The conference features 155 workshops, case studies, and computer labs over the course of 3½ days. It is expected to draw 2,000 attendees from all 50 states, Australia, Canada, and Puerto Rico.

  • The Darknet and Emerging Technologies: As the Internet continues to evolve, new layers populate where offenders commit criminal offenses—one such area is known as the “Darknet.” In this presentation, SEARCH staff explain how the Darknet works and how potential criminal activity facilitated on the Darknet is crucial to investigating and prosecuting cases. They also demonstrate new, popular software applications for mobile devices and tablets that were developed to access the Darknet.
  • Facebook Advanced Searching & URL Manipulations: In this computer lab, SEARCH trainers demonstrate how to use Facebook graph search and URL manipulations to retrieve potential investigative material from Facebook profiles.

This lab delves into detailed Twitter searching techniques to enable investigators to retrieve the best possible evidence from tweets, Twitter profiles, hashtags, and tweet location.
  • Must-Have Technology Tools: This lab introduces critical software and methodologies that enhance online investigations, such as add-ons that enable investigators to save videos and web content; Google searching techniques; and software that enhances image searches and more.
