The Investigation of Computer CrimeIn this digital age, more and more criminals are using computers in their criminal activities. Computer technology provides sophisticated criminals with a powerful tool. Recent cases indicate that high-technology theft and computer-related crime are increasingly commonplace. In response, criminal justice investigators must gain - and maintain - an early technological advantage. The ability of criminal justice to properly investigate and prosecute computer-related crimes will have far-reaching effects on a wide variety of criminal activities, including espionage, narcotics trafficking, gambling and telecommunications fraud.
In answer to this need, SEARCH has created a training course designed to teach criminal justice investigators and support staff how to investigate high-technology theft and computer-related crime.
