The problems of computer forensics and aggressive law enforcement

Tuesday, February 13, 2007 (14:04:57)
Substitute teacher Julie Amero faces up to 40 years in prison but the facts strongly suggest that she was wrongfully convicted. Many issues remain, from the need for an independent computer forensics investigation and the presence of spyware and adware on the machine, to bad or incomplete legal work on both sides of this criminal case...

Mobile forensics turns up heat on suspects

Monday, February 12, 2007 (14:15:54)
Police forces in the UK and worldwide already use Guidance Software's EnCase computer forensics package, most famously in the interminable cash for honours investigation. Now the firm is set to announce an expansion into mobile with a package it's calling Neutrino. The ongoing trial of the alleged failed 21/7 bombers has seen mobile phone evidence used extensively. In 2002 linguistics experts were brought in to give evidence during the Danielle Jones murder trial, when it was shown her uncle had used her phone to dupe family into believing she was still alive. A police source told us: "It's [a suspect's mobile phone] one of the first things we look for in serious crimes these days..."

Computer Forensics and the Menomonie Police Department

Saturday, February 10, 2007 (14:00:18)
Technology moves at a fast pace. It moves ahead. The majority of people have computers now,” said Sergeant Andy Crouse of the Menomonie Police Department (MPD). The use of computers in law enforcement is growing, whether the crime was committed via computers — such as distributing CP — or whether the evidence in a drug case was retrieved from a hard drive and used to prosecute the criminal. Crime now “knows no tax districts, jurisdictions or boundaries,” said Crouse. Chief Todd Chaney of the Altoona Police Department, who often works with the computer forensics experts in Menomonie as well as other area law enforcement personnel, stated that computer forensics capabilities are “a critical need in law enforcement today, and are also a critical deficiency.” Law enforcement at all levels and jurisdictions, from local community police to state criminologists to federal agencies such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation, are finding themselves short of staff, short of equipment and, in some cases, short of technical training when it comes to recent developments in computer forensics...
