Crimes are rarely solved within the first 24 hours, but those first hours after the crime is discovered are critical for law enforcement. While nothing can replace a skilled investigator, various technologies can assist in providing significant leads. Instead of treating technology as an afterthought, this webinar will discuss digital identifiers that can help you during your investigations. During this webinar, we will share victim-based, suspect-based, and location-based ways of finding evidence to include innovative ways of seeing a crime scene through different technologies. This is a part 1 of 2 webinars. Though it is recommended, you do not need to attend part 1 to attend part 2. Remember, even though your suspect's device did not "connect" to anything, it likely did leave a trail on the victim's device, nearby routers, or may have been collected by tech companies. No high-tech background is needed!
