Using Digital Evidence in the U.S. Justice System

Enter the title in the CALiO™Collections search box.

Major shifts in the information technology landscape over the past two decades have made the collection and analysis of digital evidence an increasingly important tool for solving crimes and preparing court cases. As technology has become more portable and powerful, greater amounts of information are created, stored, and accessed. Modern devices can serve as huge repositories of personal information yet be carried in a pocket and accessed with a single hand or even voice command. There is a clear benefit to having ample information to obtain convictions, but law enforcement and other criminal justice partners need to balance the recovery and admissibility of digital evidence with privacy concerns. This work discusses the rise of digital evidence, unique challenges, and the results of a workshop held to prioritize needs in digital evidence processing.
