The Internet of Things (IoT) has been defined as a system of interrelated, internet-connected objects that are able to collect and transfer data over a wireless network without human intervention. The personal or business possibilities are endless, but when applying this to criminal acts, identifying evidence and the prosecution of criminal use adds a totally different dimension to the phrase Internet of Things. This program will identify up to four TTA providers to identify these types of crimes and provide training on how investigations and prosecution should be handled, as well as on how communities can be made aware of their vulnerability to fall victim to these types of crimes. A special effort will be made to ensure these trainings are available to law enforcement agencies, no matter the size or the location. This effort will specifically include prosecutors and judges to ensure they are aware of these types of crimes and how other states, counties, and jurisdictions are addressing IoT crimes and trends.
