High Tech Crime Unit

Fighting Computer Crimes

A High Tech Crime Unit, consisting of two detectives, has been established in order to fight Internet fraud, child pornography, theft, and assist in other crimes that may involve computers or in which evidence might be found in computers. Having gone through intensive training in computer investigations, Internet investigations, and computer forensics, the High Tech Crime Unit members have also assisted other law enforcement agencies in crime investigations and are members of the San Bernardino County High Tech Crime Team.

The High Tech Crime Unit has completed numerous computer forensic examinations. Some of these cases involve multiple computers and many pieces of computer media. Detectives in the High Tech Crime Unit have testified as experts in computer forensics in both California Superior Courts and Federal Courts.
