Increase in digital crime investigations

​The BCA-led Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force has received 640 tips about suspected child pornography so far this year. Investigations of this nature are growing as have technology-based investigations in general.

Nearly every criminal investigation requires the examination of technology -- whether it's the cell phone of an abduction victim or the hard drive of a child pornography suspect. Watch a recent story about how the BCA is adding new resources to meet that need and the needs of law enforcement statewide.
