Brief Overview:

Open Source Intelligence is a crucial aspect of combating crime in the 21st century. Modern-day technology continues to evolve; however, law enforcement has been behind the curve.

Unfortunately, many law enforcement agencies are attempting to fight current criminal activities with outdated methods.

This course is designed to help bring officers and investigators up to speed with the new technology trends and give them practical/applicable tools to conduct online investigations involving open source and social media platforms. Uniform officers can immediately put aspects of the course to work as effectively as detectives or criminal analysts.

Topics include Internet basics such as IP addresses and domains, an overview of currently popular social media platforms, and best practices for building an online undercover profile.

This course will feature live demonstrations of both open-source and commercially available investigative tools for information gathering, and artifacts related to social media; as well as automated utilities to capture information and crawl websites. Police officers teach this class for police officers. The method of teaching is smooth and straight forward, and each officer will leave with immediately applicable tools to assist in investigations.
