How To Investigate Cybercrime

By David Griffith

Today and every day, thousands of people worldwide are being victimized by computer crime. That’s why just about every major municipal or county law enforcement agency in the United States now has a new breed of detective: the computer crime or “cybercrime” investigator.

If someone had told me then that Captain Gadget was laying the foundation for the future of police work, I would have pointed and laughed and probably choked on my donut. But now I have to admit that he was.

Supreme custom builds prisoner transport vehicles to each agency’s specifications. This model holds nine inmates in two separate compartments: six in one and three in another.

Just as clip-it folding knives have become an unofficial part of the duty uniform for the military, EMS, and law enforcement, so, too, have pocket tools.

Officer Safety Searches
