The Law Enforcement Cyber Center is an online portal that is designed to provide law enforcement officials—chiefs, investigators, line officers, and prosecutors—with comprehensive information and practical resources in preventing, investigating, mitigating, and responding to cybercrime and cyber-enabled threats. The Center addresses cybercrime investigation, digital evidence collection and management, and information systems security. It is designed to leverage existing investments, and to message and channel cyber-related information and online resources to law enforcement practitioners. Additional and original content will be developed as needed, but much of the work of the Center will be focused on messaging and outreach activities to engage law enforcement practitioners and channel users to emerging news, established training, technical assistance, investigative tools and support, and online resources.
The Center is funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) and the Program Manager for the Information Sharing Environment (PM-ISE), and was created through the joint efforts of the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), RAND Corporation, and the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF). In addition, the Center represents a strategic partnership with a host of federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies (e.g., FBI, DHS, USSS, ICE, etc.) and professional organizations representing subject matter experts (e.g., NW3C, MS-ISAC, SEARCH, HTCIA, etc.).
