Digital Evidence Section

The Digital Evidence Section was recently featured in a Fortune Magazine article and a companion CNN story on law enforcement and computer forensic investigations.

Accrediation was given to the Digital Evidence Section in 2007 from the New York State Commission on Forensic Science and the American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors. 

This achievement made the Digital Evidence Section the first accredited digital evidence section in New York State and the seventeenth in the United States at that time.  

The Digital Evidence Section conducts examinations of:

  • Computers
  • Cellular telephones
  • Electronic storage devices  

These examinations are conducted for local and federal agencies and for a variety of cases, including:

  • Homicide
  • Illegal gambling
  • Narcotics
  • Distribution of child pornography
  • Identity theft
