Tools and Technology


Increasingly, criminals use mobile devices, social media, the dark web, and other technologies to commit nature crimes. To meet the demands of this evolved environment, law enforcement agencies must understand how to access and secure data from various devices and platforms, as well as how to put these investigative pieces together through cooperation among federal, state, local, and international agencies, and local communities.

Best Practices
