Course Descriptions

As part of our mission, the NTRCFL regularly trains our law enforcement colleagues throughout our service area and the state of Texas in various digital forensics tools & techniques — all free of charge — in our modern classroom.

Below is a description of our current course offerings:

Image Scan – This software tool was created by members of the FBI's Computer Analysis Response Team specifically for "knock & talk" situations relating to child exploitation investigations. Once deployed, the software quickly identifies and isolates images on a suspect's computer and stores them on a USB device – without altering any files on the computer. ImageScan consists of a CD and a USB device. Click here to read our FAQs about ImageScan.
