Fact-Finding Mission to France
In light of the escalating terrorism threats to the United States and the recent attack on Charlie Hebdo, the LAPD wanted to learn about this type of attack and the intent behind it. The LAPD’s Counter-Terrorism and Special Operations Bureau asked for funds to send four officers to Paris, France, in March for a Fact-Finding Mission with members of the NYPD.
The mission included a series of intelligence briefings and tours of crime scenes. The main areas of interest for the LAPD tactical operations, command and control, interoperability, investigative strategies, forensics, and overall threat awareness. The officers attending wanted to bring back lessons learned and provide a detailed presentation for the LAPD, some additional City of Los Angeles departments, Major Cities Chiefs Intelligence Commanders’ Group, and county sheriffs’ organizations.
Cybercrime and Mobile Digital
The LAPD’s Commercial Crimes Division approached the LAPF for funding for two classes: 1) Basic Cybercrime Investigation and 2) Mobile Device Forensics. The Basic Cybercrime Investigation Course will provide knowledge and skills for 120 LAPD officers that will be used in investigating cybercrimes and crimes that are in the cyber domain. Some of the objectives include obtaining knowledge on the current state of cyber law as it pertains to criminal law and gaining awareness of the role social media plays in law enforcement. The Mobile Device Forensics course will provide training for 40 LAPD officers in the seizure and forensic examination of mobile devices. These officers will be able to testify in court as experts in mobile forensics.
This year’s sessions covered post-traumatic syndrome, human sex trafficking, the pay-wage gap, mental health, as well as lessons learned from the Boston Marathon Bombing.
