Cell Phone Forensics (In-Service)

The ability to lawfully seize, and analyze this evidence has great investigative potential for the law enforcement officer. The Cell Phone Forensics In-Service is a 2-day program that provides investigators with training in the art of cellular acquisitions, understanding GSM, CDMA, and emerging technologies.

In the United States today there are over 327 million cellular phones. With a population of over 315 million, and discounting those who are very young, it’s safe to say that “almost everyone” has a cell phone. Never in the history of technology has a single device so quickly become imbedded into the fabric of society. To a great extent, law enforcement has not kept pace with the rapid evolution of cell phone technology nor adequately addressed the investigative significance of cell phones. These mobile, handheld devices are far more than communications tools. Virtually all cell phones are digital storage devices that retain a substantial amount of personal data including:

Call logs (incoming and outgoing); Contact information (personal address books); Text messages; Tasks and ‘to-do’ lists; Personal calendars; Photographs; Movie clips; and Web pages and web history.
