No ordinary CSI: mobile phone forensics

Why should anyone care about mobile phone forensics if they have no skeletons in the closet?

"Mobile phones have become so embedded into our daily use that little thought is given to the type and amount of information we store on them," said Adam Stafford, a mobile phone forensics expert with accounting firm BDO in Western Australia.

Stafford, a former officer with the Police Computer Crime Squad in Western Australia, fondly recalled how some criminals had the odd habit of taking photographs of their prized assets.

For example, criminals nabbed for possessing weapons were found to have photographs posing with their marijuana plants on their smartphones.

Technology means more work for police

It could take thousands of dollars and overtime hours to keep up.

US News:

As “cybercrime” becomes more and more prevalent, police will tell you it’s crucial that they don’t fall behind.

“When you talk about cybercrime, that’s pretty much anything that can be transmitted over a computer or telephone or anything else — whether it’s transferring pictures or whether it’s running a scam or maintaining evidence of a crime in a computer or cell phone,”

said Canyon County Criminal Investigations Section Lt. Marv Dashiell.

Technology is always changing, and for police, it could take thousands of dollars and overtime hours to keep up.

Drug dealers, child enticers and scammers are finding new ways to use technology to their advantage. This presents pros and cons for police.
