Chief’s Reference Guide
This reference guide is designed to support police chiefs in understanding the broad topics of cyber crime, specific action items to be addressed, and resources available to assist in these efforts. In addition to creating an outline of cyber crime fundamentals, the Checklist links to resources which elaborate on these topics in greater detail and connect chiefs to subject matter experts for further collaboration. The information contained in the checklist is not an all encompassing resource, however. It highlights core information to help law enforcement executives better protect your agency from cyber threats and serve your community.
