High Tech Crimes Division
The High Tech Crimes Division was created in 2009 and is comprised of four sections; High Tech Crimes Section, Northern Virginia / District of Columbia Internet Crimes Against Children (NOVA/DC ICAC) Task Force, Technical Support Section and the Computer Evidence Recovery Section.
- High Tech Crimes Section (HTCS): HTCS agents investigate cases related to computer intrusion, computer trespass and assist in the investigations of numerous other offenses such as homicide, larceny, sexual assault, narcotics trafficking and others where computers and mobile devices play a role in the commission of the offense.
- NOVA/DC ICAC Task Force: The NOVA/DC ICAC Task Force is comprised of local, state and federal law enforcement agents who investigate child exploitation related offenses facilitated through the use of digital devices and the Internet.
- Computer Evidence Recovery Section (CERS): The primary purpose of the Computer Evidence Recovery Section is to provide computer evidence recovery services, digital forensic examination services, and expert testimony for law enforcement agencies through in-depth examinations of computer data stored or seized during the course of a criminal investigation.
- Technical Support Section (TSS): In 2019 the Technical Support Section received 2,318 requests for service from federal, state and local law enforcement agencies. Each request was related to ongoing criminal investigations. The section continues to support significant investigations and uses sophisticated methods and technologies to assist any requesting law enforcement agency in the investigation of virtually any criminal offense. Section personnel also provide Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) equipment and services to courts for the purpose of facilitating the testimony of child victims and witnesses pursuant to state law in certain circumstances.
