With crime today, technology is nearly always involved. Whether it’s a smartphone on the scene or a cybercrime committed with a computer, officers trained in technology are going to be even more important in the years to come.

We want to give promising new officers an opportunity to get a head start in digital investigations. If you are currently performing a non-technical role and would like to explore future career opportunities in digital forensics, then this scholarship program is for you!
