Exploring technical and operational innovations impacting the world
of forensic investigation

Criminal investigation and prosecution is reliant on digital forensic technologies, and as such, forensic practitioners, scientists and investigators need to be equipped with modern investigative tools. By leveraging biometrics, artificial intelligence and surveillance systems to confront evolving criminal activity, prosecutors can leverage undisputable digital evidence to administer justice and deter criminal activity.

Public Sector Network’s complimentary Next-Gen Forensics virtual event will explore how our judicial system can leverage modern solutions to investigate, prosecute and prevent crime.
