Online Officer Safety: Protecting Yourself in Cyberspace

Police officers, crime analysts, and other criminal justice professionals are high-value targets for cyber criminals. Too often, they are also soft targets. This webinar will cover the fundamentals of securing wireless networks both at home and when traveling, understanding and controlling social media footprints, and securing digital devices. Many police officers have a personal and family security plan. In 2018, it is important for those plans to extend to the internet, how you connect to the internet, and the devices that are used to make those connections.

Introduction to Cell Phone Call/Communication Detail Records

This presentation will provide an overview of cell phone call/communication detail records (CDRs) and will focus on historical records available from primary cell phone companies, including logs of phone calls, short message service text messages, and Internet activity. The overview will also provide a brief introduction to cell phone-created CDRs, which may be available from non-cell phone sources such as email providers, smart phone application providers, and non-cellular-based Internet service providers.

Webinar: Implementing Evidence Based Practices and Services with Fidelity

Although crime control policy and program development processes are increasingly being informed by scientific evidence, identifying and adopting what works is only part of what’s needed to realize positive outcomes. Evidence-based programs and practices (EBPs) still have to be implemented with fidelity and integrity in order to be successful. Unfortunately, implementation is not an easy task. Implementation science, however, can help practitioners tackle implementation challenges so the promise of EBPs can be more fully realized.
