The first section of the text introduces readers to cyber-based crimes and policing. Over the subsequent three sections students learn about digital evidence and forensics, the myths and realities of law enforcement investigations in cyberspace, and cyber forensics and the law.
Specific topics include the relationship between connectivity and crime, text-messaging forensics, search and seizure in cyberspace, freedom, privacy, and government surveillance, and DNA database usage.
Policing Cyberspace shows students that it isn't necessary to be an information technology specialist in order to study crime-related phenomena within the domain of cyberspace. The book is ideal for introductory digital forensics or forensic science classes. It can also be used in classes on law enforcement or policing and technology.
