ADF Solutions regularly sponsors the CACC event to provide law enforcement and Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) investigators from throughout the United States and Canada with best practices training on solving crimes against children using ADF digital forensic software.
Federal, state, local and tribal law enforcement agencies rely on ADF's automated digital forensic software to help them rapidly investigate child exploitation cases beginning on-scene and in a forensic lab. ADF software, Digital Evidence Investigator® and Triage-Investigator® leverage the Child Abuse Image Database (CAID) and Project Vic hashsets to speed image identification and classification thereby making it easier for ICAC Task Force investigators to quickly identify and safeguard victims.
