Introduction to Cellular Phones & Data in Criminal Investigations-CANCELLED


October 30, 2023


8:00am - 4:30pm






Whether investigating drug crimes, stolen autos, homicides or anything in between, cellular phones and data are sure to play a role in today’s investigations.  This course focuses on identifying, preserving and collecting data during criminal investigations and how this data can be used to build strong cases. It includes an explanation of available law enforcement resources, proper evidence seizure techniques of cellular devices and the drafting of search warrants specific to records and data held by third parties.  Students will be shown the process of a forensic cell phone examination in order to build their understanding of the data.  Instruction will be provided on obtaining historical call detail records and social media records, with a general overview of these records and their use in investigations.  The course ends with a real-life case review in which investigators identified, arrested, charged and convicted a group of violent criminals through the use of data.
