Cell phone location evidence is used frequently by law enforcement to show a suspect’s location at the time of a crime. The presenter will provide participants with background information on cellular technology, carrier stored data, how experts obtain records, accuracy and validity of those records. The presentation, while technically based, is presented to offer an easy to understand introduction to the science of cell phone based location evidence. Both cell tower location evidence and other cell phone location-tracking evidence will be covered.
This program is the second of the 2021 IDS Forensic Science Education Series. The webinars will be presented monthly and are free to attend.
