Social Media Investigations

This one-day foundation course is designed for anyone on the police department from an analyst, a new beat police officer, all the way to a well-seasoned detective. This course will serve the student as an introduction to the well-known and lesser known Social Media applications and how to conduct their investigations using Social Media as a tool to further their investigations, and how to tie these accounts to their suspects.  The students will subsequently be instructed on how to legally obtain information from these applications.  In addition to that, students will be provided with groundbreaking OSINT programs and software that will not only assist in their investigations, this will also help organize their cases. Seating is limited to 40 students.

Computer prerequisite: If you have a personal laptop (Windows or Mac computers using Boot Camp), please bring it to class. If you use an employer’s laptop, it will be necessary for you to have administrative rights. This course might require installing software that will require administrative privileges. If you have any questions or need clarification, please contact [email protected].
