St. Cloud State University's Herberger College of Business is offering law enforcement officials five days of free training on computer crime and digital forensics techniques Feb. 20-24.
This Cyber Crime Initiative is offered in cooperation with the National Forensics Training Center, a Department of Justice-funded center that has trained more than 1,200 law enforcement officers.
To keep up with all aspects of criminal behavior, law enforcement officers increasingly need special training to investigate crimes committed with and against computers. The training is a response to the increased ease with which people can access the Internet to commit crimes as well as the increased emphasis on issues of homeland security. Participants will learn ways to uncover, protect, and exploit digital evidence to respond to crimes. Completion of the training is worth up to 40 POST Credits.
For more information or to participate, contact Mark Schmidt, associate professor of Business Computer Information Systems at

The Business Computer Information Systems program is part of the Herberger Business School. The Herberger Business School prepares students for careers in business and is accredited by AACSB International.
