Awareness training designed to cover information about social media that all law enforcement professionals need to know.
On January 17, 2013, the Indiana State Police and the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C) partnered to host a live webinar on the use of social media in Investigations to over 1,000 state and local law enforcement personnel and prosecutors across the country representing all fifty (50) states. The webinar titled “What Investigators and Analysts Need to Know about Facebook and Online Social Media: Awareness and Education Introductory Webinar” is the first of a three-part series funded by the Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, Bureau of Justice Assistance.
Conducted by Lieutenant Chuck Cohen, an 18 year veteran with the Indiana State Police who speaks internationally on a variety of topics including the use of online social media in criminal investigations, this awareness training is designed to cover information about online social media that all criminal investigators and prosecutors need to know to more effectively investigate and solve crimes and protect their communities.
Social networking sites are virtual communities. As in any large community, these sites are home to criminal organizations, fraud and violent crime. This webinar is to support law enforcement and prosecutors by increasing awareness to prevent, investigate and prosecute crimes using these virtual communities.
