Social Networking Sites & Investigations

Information available on social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter has the potential to impact every area of an investigation. With the right skills, you can find information about suspects, victims, witnesses and possible co-conspirators.

As an investigator, you know how important it is to search for, locate, save, and replicate online information relating to all areas of crime. Because web pages can quickly appear and vanish, you need to continuously document your findings. Let us show you the latest tools, tips, and techniques that will help keep your investigation moving forward. 

Our hands-on social network training is non-technical in nature and is recommended to all investigators regardless of their assignment or technical background. We have resource guides specifically for social networking site investigations, and we offer expertise to justice agencies conducting these types of investigations.
