Specialized training in demand with law enforcement professionals

Classes include “Cell Phone Call Detail Record Analysis” and “Plotting Movement from Data gathered from GPS Devices.”

“The training for both cell phone and GPS data analysis is very much in demand by law enforcement,” said Raymond Philo, professor of practice in criminal justice and director of UC’s Economic Crime Institute. “In fact, prospective registrants have been put on a waiting list because we are at maximum capacity.”

The Oneida County District Attorney's Office is the law enforcement sponsor for this training, Philo said.

The NW3C is a nonprofit organization that provides support for the prevention, investigation and prosecution of economic and high-tech crime through a combination of research, training and investigative support services. It has more than 4,000 member agencies in the U.S. as well as 15 other countries throughout the world.
