Law Enforcement Workshop
On 5 September, we will host a one-day pre-Summit training exclusively for law enforcement. Teaching this day-long event will be international and national experts on law enforcement, laws, and technology.
As law enforcement, do you need:
- Up to date knowledge of how perpetrators misuse technology to stalk and abuse?
- Strategies on investigating tech-facilitated domestic violence and other crimes against women?
- To know how to help victims of tech abuse?
When technology is used by perpetrators to stalk, harass and intimidate victims, police often face additional challenges in how they investigate and prosecute these crimes. Investigating these crimes can be time-intensive because of the increased amount of information that needs to be analysed; resource-intensive because in some cases new investigative tools need to be used; and difficult to prosecute because current laws may be too restrictive. This workshop will provide an overview of how perpetrators misuse technology to abuse and the laws that address technology-facilitated abuse. During the workshop, participants will learn practical investigation methods for a range of technology, such as email and computers.
Presenting on this day will be Detective Bryan Franke, a 30-year veteran of the Longmont Police Department (Colorado, USA). He is currently assigned to, and was instrumental in forming, the Cyber Crimes Unit, as well as the development of the Boulder County Computer Forensics Lab; a combined computer forensics lab made up of personnel from four agencies. Detective Franke has performed forensic examinations on computers, cell phones, GPS units and other portable devices such as tablets, external HDD and various types of flash storage.
Other presenters include technology safety and domestic violence experts from WESNET and legal experts from New South Wales Women’s Legal Services.
