Learn How Technology is Changing the Nature of Crime and Criminal Investigations

Join the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) National Training and Technical Assistance Center (NTTAC) and the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF) for the webinar “The Changing Nature of Crime and Criminal Investigations” on Wednesday, November 28 from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. ET. During the webinar, participants will learn how computers and other technologies impact the nature of crime and criminal investigations.

Increasingly, criminals use computers, mobile devices, social media, the dark web, and other technologies to commit crimes that were unheard of a decade or two ago, in addition to finding new ways to commit traditional 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, often through cooperation among federal, state, local, and even international agencies.

In January 2018, PERF published the report New National Commitment Required: The Changing Nature of Crime and Criminal Investigations to outline this criminal justice issue. During the webinar, researchers from PERF will discuss findings from the report, as well as outline the training, tools, and resources available to law enforcement agencies seeking to build their capacities to address the changing nature of crime and investigate new crimes.
