(Criminal Procedure, Law & Computer Forensics):
The Department of Criminal Justice helmed project for cyber security for local law enforcement has received funding of $830,000 from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The project researches and develops cyber security via local law enforcement, from legal/ethical to technical issues for two years. It is a collaboration with Education, Business and the Speed School of Engineering, continuing efforts funded by the National Security Agency that have expanded into related programs with the Department of Defense and the NSA helmed by Education/ELEOD.
