Digital Evidence Training

Today, Saturday, June 28, 2014, from 9:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. the Department of the Honolulu Prosecuting Attorney had a training on digital evidence at the University of Hawaii William S. Richardson School of Law for its attorneys and investigators, as well as some law enforcement guests.  We had a really good U.S. mainland speaker on the topic, a former prosecutor who is now with a digital evidence company.  Through technology, we can find the whereabouts, communication, and thoughts of humans.  However, U.S. and Hawaii privacy laws are strict and can personally penalize law enforcement individuals for discovery that isn’t narrowly focused to the truth of the matter in the case among other issues. The laws send a clear message that government must be very careful and responsible with their access to digital information.
