Interview With Eric Oldenburg, Tech Evangelist, Griffeye

Eric, tell us a bit about your background and how you became an investigator.

I was a police officer with the Phoenix Police Department in Arizona for 24 years. 15 years of that was working with crimes against children.

Going to Vice was a stepping stone for me – a way to learn how to go undercover, how to handle cases, how to­ take on a case load.

How did you get involved with CSA investigations?

In 2001, our police department got a charter with the Internet Crimes Against Children taskforce (ICAC), which is one of 61 federal taskforces in the United States. I tested to go there – mostly because of the technology. I did the job from 2001 to 2005. By then I needed a break.
