Mobile Devices and Social Media Investigation Techniques, 8 hours

STC: 0920-078245

Smart phones and mobile devices are hugely popular and have become “go-to tools.” Smart phones are used to make more than phone calls. Social media and photographic apps like Facebook and Instagram, in addition to GPS functions, video capability, email, and browser history have made offenders’ devices a treasure trove of information for the investigator or supervision PO. Mobile Devices and Social Media Investigation Techniques provides the investigator with practical skills to use these devices to his/her advantage in supervising and monitoring probationers. This course teaches the probation officer skills for practical triage. This course gets updated regularly because technologies and laws change rapidly.
