You first met LEO in September 2018 when ADF shared an announcement about the upcoming Crimes Against Children Conference in Dallas, Texas. We came up with the idea of LEO one day when our team was sharing stories about the many successes our Law Enforcement customers were having using our digital forensic software to quickly solve crimes.
With the spread of COVID-19 the last few weeks have been challenging to say the least. There has been a lot of information to digest, a lot of opinions to muddle through, and now many disruptions to our daily lives. And now, millions more people are working from home.

Today is the final day of the 2019 NSA Annual Educational and Technology Expo which ran June 15-18, 2019 in Louisville, Kentucky. The annual event featured more than 60 session topics and over 500 vendors who come together to educate and showcase new ways to empower our nation's sheriffs to serve and protect their communities.
Seminar topics ranged in topic from leadership and community policing, to court security, jail operations and law enforcement operations, to resource programs, technology solutions, homeland security and more. Some of our favorite session topics were:
Most children in the United States now have access to internet services. The internet enables children to have access to vast amounts of valuable and educative information that facilitates their growth. However, the internet further exposes children to numerous dangers. Some of the risks children are exposed to on the internet include pornography, racist, sexist, violent, and demeaning information.
These risks prompted the formation of the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force program. The organization is a national network of 61 coordinated task forces that represent over 4,500 local, state, and federal law enforcement and prosecutorial agencies. The state and regional ICAC task forces are maintained and expanded by the ICAC program to address technology-facilitated child exploitation crimes.
Police Week Provides Much Needed Camaraderie For Our Police
It's indisputable that all of us throughout the United States benefit from the work of our police officers. Indeed, they do all they can to keep our communities safe and orderly. Police Week is a great opportunity to celebrate all they do every day of the year.
The 2019 Techno Security & Digital Forensics Conference in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina will take place June 2-5 at the Marriott Resort & Spa at Grande Dunes. Attendees will have the ability to receive Continuing Professional Education Credits (CPE) depending on their organization.

Following the recent ICAC Task Force Commanders Meeting, the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force Program announced the date and location of the 2019 National Law Enforcement Training on Child Exploitation.
January 2019 is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month
Human trafficking has been a federal crime in the United States since The Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 was passed into law as a federal statute. Each year since 2010 has been designated National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month with January 11th each year being observed as National Human Trafficking Awareness Day.
One of the reasons that investigators choose ADF software as their primary triage tool is because it can be used standalone or in conjunction with traditional forensic software. Triage is ideal for front-line investigators because it's fast, easy-to-use, and can net results in situations where time matters. Deployed in a forensic lab, triage software can reduce forensic backlogs and allow forensic examiners to prioritize deep dive forensic investigations.
23 Industry Events: Network, Learn, Grow
The knowledge and training you can gain at digital forensic conferences around the world can make the difference in crime solving. In addition to networking, annual conferences are one of the best ways to learn from peers, stay on top of the latest strategies and tactics, get an advance look at industry trends, and they can be a great place to talk face-to-face with digital forensic vendors. In addition to keynotes and lectures, many annual conferences also offer hands-on lab sessions or pre-conference training classes. Below is a list of some of our favorite annual conferences.
