COVID-19 Considerations for Collecting and Handling Digital Evidence
April 9 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pmFree
The ongoing efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 have resulted in social distancing of the general population while law enforcement professionals are still on the job. Key to rule of law is proper investigation of crime and collection of relevant evidence to support prosecution. This new law enforcement operational reality, safeguards for minimizing human interaction while conducting patrol and investigative operations, and processing of crime scenes and collection of evidence are complicated by possible contamination of subjects, environments, and evidence. This presents a range of both physical and legal considerations in balancing human safety in the face of a highly contagious biohazard with sustained operational efficacy. This webinar will examine these topics and provide information as to addressing these challenges.
