Criminals who use the internet for illegal purposes will no longer be able to hide their identities, especially after two local officers received federal training to target those criminals.
Detectives Bert Finley and Scott Raup attended computer forensic training at the federal law enforcement training center in Glynco, Georgia.
Hopkinsville Police say the three-week long training consisted of digital evidence analysis and seized computer evidence recovery with the course designed to teach law enforcement representatives how to navigate through the two most commonly used computer forensic suites in the united states and fundamental forensic techniques to analyze electronic data from desktop computer systems.
Hopkinsville Police say with this training, it’s the department’s goal to one day have its own forensic lab in the near future.
