About the event

This Social Media Investigations course is designed to teach law enforcement

personnel how to legally utilize and exploit social media intelligence in their respective

roles. Students will start out the course by learning the most current case law that

allows them to use these techniques in their investigations, then the students will be

shown how to properly set up undercover accounts on social media platforms. The

course will then cover the most popular social media platforms including Facebook,

Instagram, Snapchat, TikTok and Twitter. Students will be taught how to find their

target on each of the platforms, how to connect their target to an account and how to

submit/analyze the legal process from these platforms. During the course students will

be shown relevant and current case studies to reinforce some of the unconventional

investigative techniques taught in the course. Most importantly students will be shown

how to properly document, save and preserve the evidence they find on social media.

Nearly every case law enforcement investigates has a tie to social media, starting from

the first responding officer taking the report to the detective finishing the case. The

investigative techniques taught in this class apply to Patrol Officers, Detectives, SRO’s,

Dispatchers, Crime Analysts, etc.
