NEW JUSTICE DEPARTMENT RESOURCE FOR ELECTRONIC CRIMES SCENES

WASHINGTON - The Department of Justice's Office of Justice Programs (OJP) today announced the availability of a new resource for first responders. The "Electronic Crime Scene Investigation: An On-the-Scene Reference for First Responders" is intended as a quick reference for first responders who may be responsible for identifying, preserving, collecting and securing evidence at electronic crime scenes. The spiral-bound, pocket-sized "flipbook" is a compilation of training and experience that provides critical direction in approaching investigations involving electronic crime scenes and digital evidence. The flipbook is a companion piece to OJP's earlier publication, Electronic Crime Scene Investigation: A Guide for First Responders, Second Edition.
