Core Skills for the Investigation of Cellular DevicesCellular devices such as smartphones are more common today than computers. Terrorist attacks, rapes, assaults, illegal drug operations, child exploitation, and evidence of many other crimes are captured on cell device cameras, videos and voicemail on a daily basis.
