The Changing Nature of Crime and Criminal Investigations Webinar

On November 28, 2018, the BJA National Training and Technical Assistance Center hosted this webinar in partnership with the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF). During the webinar, PERF researchers discussed the impact of computers and other technologies on the nature of crime, as well as explained how technology changes investigations for law enforcement. The discussion drew upon findings from PERF’s January 2018 report, New National Commitment Required: The Changing Nature of Crime and Criminal Investigations. Presenters also highlighted the various training, tools, and resources that can help law enforcement agencies address the changing nature of crime and investigate new types of crime.
