First Responders Complete Digital Forensic Training to Combat Cybercrime in Belize
With the development of technology, one of the downfalls is cybercrime. The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crimes (UNODC) in collaboration with Belize’s Ministry of Home Affairs and New Growth Industries completed an eight-month “First Responders and Digital Forensic Analyst Course” training. Gabriel Juárez Lucas, UNODC Project Coordinator explained what new knowledge the project entailed for its participants.
Keyren Williams, a Police Constable, is one of the 78 graduates among, police officers, scenes of crime technicians, magistrates, and Crown Councils explained what the importance of this training was to him.
These first responders are now trained to receive proper evidence of a crime scene which we have seen lacking in recent incidents.
