There is a rapid evolution in the technologies people use to communicate and share material with each other, in the companies providing the sharing platforms, and in how people choose to communicate with each other. People are increasingly choosing to communicate using text, images, and videos rather than traditional electronic voice communications. And, they increasingly choose to use platforms that make this communication openly available for others to view.

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.
This webinar is intended for LAW ENFORCEMENT PERSONNEL to include investigators, prosecutors, and analysts. Please register using your agency-issued email.

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 that the promise of EBPs can be more fully realized.
