The Computer Forensics Detail conducts forensic examinations on all forms of digital media seized during criminal investigations. Digital media includes computers, cell phones, PDA’s, flash media, CD’s, DVD’s and a variety of other devices capable of storing electronic data. The primary role of this unit is to conduct examinations in support of other investigative details such as Homicide, Sex Crimes, Family Protection, Narcotics, Financial Crimes, and General Investigations. They also assist patrol operations and other local law enforcement agencies with the collection and preservation of digital evidence.
There are currently three highly-trained Investigators who have earned their Certified Forensics Computer Examiner certificate. In addition, they have each completed several advanced computer forensic courses recommended by the International Association of Computer Investigative Specialists (IACIS).
