Abstract
The IACP, in partnership with the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), has established the Cyber Center to address emerging challenges associated with cyber threats and cyber crime. The Cyber Center will identify and address the needs of law enforcement; leverage existing resources and create strategic partnerships with relevant stakeholders; and provide law enforcement officials with resources to better equip agencies to mitigate, investigate, and respond to cyber threats and crimes. Through continued leadership, coordination, research, and resource development, the IACP will work to enhance the ability of law enforcement to respond to cyber threats and cyber crime. Leveraging their global membership of police executives, subject matter experts, and industry partners, the IACP will work to increase the capacity of agencies to respond to emerging threats, enhance and improve the investigation of cyber crimes, and effectively manage and process an expanding array of digital evidence.
