Annotation: This report describes the features of a free training program conducted by Mississippi State University (funded by the National Institute of Justice and Office of Justice Programs) that instructs law enforcement officers about fighting cybercrime.
Abstract: The National Forensics Training Center (NFTC) offers 11 different classes onsite, ranging from basic computer use through legal aspects of search and seizure. Participants can also receive certification as a digital crime scene technician or a bit stream imaging technician after completing specific courses and passing an exam. The courses have a good mix of topics that address the practical needs of the law enforcement community. The training is offered at no cost to the officers or their agencies. Meals and lodging are provided during the free training; students must go online to the NFTC Web site and register. Each participant is responsible for his/her travel expenses. If travel distance is too great to come to Mississippi, instructors may come to an agency site to provide training, so long as a central agency or resource center is willing to serve as a host, providing meals and lodging. Instructors’ travel expenses are covered by the NFTC. The instructors have solid backgrounds in the fields and subjects they offer.
