Course detail: Internet Crimes Against Children

Course Description: 
The State of Kansas created criminal statutes in 2017 to combat the creation and dissemination of both self-produced and/or internet trading of both nude materials and sexually explicit materials of children with an emphasis regarding juveniles trading this type of material. Securing volatile digital evidence is key to successful investigations and prosecutions. 

With the move to mobile devices and cloud-based services the need for a quick response is critical to successful collection of digital evidence. This training focuses on the history of the role of a first responder regarding sexual exploitation of children and the digital evidence collection required by law enforcement. Participants will be given case studies along with practical exercises to gain hands-on training to similar situations they are faced with while on patrol. 

Topics covered are a history of the Internet Crimes Against Children Task force to basic understanding of the profession of computer forensics and its role in today's volatile digital evidence world. Participants will gain an understanding of the use of several venues and software currently available to collect and memorialize volatile digital evidence.
