MISSISSAUGA – Peel Regional Police say they are adding a second four-day Cyber Academy seminar after the first drew record numbers of residents looking for tips to increase their safety online. The Cyber Academy – part of the force’s Crime Prevention Academy initiative – is a public seminar running one night a week over a four-week stretch and is designed to teach participants tips and tricks to help avoiding becoming victims of criminals operating in cyberspace. More than 40 spots are available per session and the courses are taught at the Emil V. Kolb Centre for Police Excellence. “(The Cyber Academy) actually started six years ago when we started seeing an increase in crimes being run on the internet,” said Const. Yvette Logan of the crime prevention services unit. “Nowadays, pretty much any crime can be run on the internet.” “We run different academies out of this facility that deal with personal safety, home safety and things like that, but we thought we needed to isolate it and run a program that deals strictly with technology crimes and what’s happening on the internet,” she added. The program is broken up into eight sections spanning four three-hour lectures given by officers from […]

 Powered by Max Banner Ads More people going online to conduct their daily business and socialize means more opportunities for cyber crime. And that is prompting the city police technology crimes unit to dedicate four officers this spring to investigate cyber crime exclusively. “I anticipate we’re going to see an increase in this (cyber crime),” said Insp. Chad Tawfik. “All the information I’ve read has shown that Canada is probably on the higher end as far as the amount of cyber crime that is happening, probably due to the fact we have a lot of devices…I don’t see it going away.” According to police, a cyber crime is a criminal offence involving a computer as the object of the crime or the tool used to commit a material component of the offence. In 1994, Edmonton city police formed the technological crime unit in response to a growing number of frauds utilizing technology. The unit handles a number of duties including digital forensics, which has members analyze devices such as computers and mobile devices, and take off any evidence. Investigators in the unit, however, quickly became overwhelmed by an increasing demand for service. And some of the investigations, said Tawfik, are getting […]

Yusuke Katayama played a game of cat and mouse with the authorities, leading them to make numerous wrongful arrests. He threatened a massacre at a comic book event, as well as to attack a school attended by the grandchildren of Japan’s Emperor Akihito. Katayama’s campaign highlighted the difficulties the country’s police force has had in dealing with cyber crime. “He committed the crime, and the purpose of it was [for police] to make wrongful arrests,” said presiding judge Katsunori Ohno at Tokyo District Court, adding that Katayama’s actions had been “vicious”. RiddlesThroughout 2012, the 32-year-old used a virus to gain control of strangers’ computers. He then issued threats – which appeared to come from the computer’s owner – and a series of riddles that captured the attention of the national media. Among the other threats made by Katayama – who went by the alias Demon Killer – was one to attack a plane. The case highlighted the Japanese police’s tendency to extract confessions from suspects, as four people owned up to crimes which the National Police Agency (NPA) later admitted they did not commit. Computers belonging to each had been infected with a Trojan Horse virus, introduced via a link […]

Portland police chief wants to add 9 analysts, tech support jobs to help with body camera program, use of force audits

 Powered by Max Banner Ads An outside consultant has found that the Portland Police Bureau’s 930-member force is understaffed by at least 24 people, including officers, detectives and sergeants. Officers’ average response time to emergency calls is slowing, expected to exceed the bureau’s five-minute goal by 50 seconds by the end of the current fiscal year. And the bureau’s rate of clearing violent crimes and property crimes is low: 40 percent for crimes against people and 14 percent for property crimes. Portland’s new police chief cited all those factors in his proposed $181 million budget, seeking nine new full-time positions costing $835,570 for the new fiscal year that begins in July. But the positions aren’t for uniformed officers. They’re for crime analysts and civilian technical support hires. The budget proposal requests money for six crime analysts to examine and compile reports on traffic stop data and do audits of police use of force required to comply with the city’s settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice. The settlement followed a 2012 federal investigation that found police engaged in a pattern of excessive force against people with mental illness. The bureau is seeking another three technical support positions – a digital media […]

Law enforcement officials are still not sure how the body of 17-year-old Carolyn Lee Andrew ended up in a shallow grave in Duluth’s Twin Ponds in 1981. They don’t know why the aspiring model was shot once in the right temple. They don’t know where she was in the hours leading up to her death. And they don’t know when her body was dumped in the popular swimming hole eight miles from her Woodland home. But nearly 34 years later, authorities believe they’ve finally determined the identity of her killer. Crediting advances in DNA technology, local and state officials said Monday that they’ve tied the homicide to Cecil Wayne Oliver, who died in 1988. The finding was announced at a news conference by Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension and Duluth Police Department officials. The officials said a DNA sample taken recently from Oliver’s remains was a positive match for DNA recovered from Andrew’s body in 1981. “Cases like Ms. Andrew’s often take many years to solve,” said Drew Evans, assistant superintendent of the BCA. “Investigators and forensic scientists continually worked to examine this case, utilizing new techniques with new advances in forensics to provide the answers to the Andrew family, […]

Andy Coulson, the former editor of News of the World, will go on trial yet again this summer. Coulson’s retrial for accusations of paying police officers for a phone directory for the royal family is scheduled for this June, the Guardian reported. After Coulson resigned as editor in 2007 following phone hacking charges against the tabloid newspaper, Prime Minister David Cameron hired him to be his communications director. Coulson resigned that position in 2011 amidst new and expanded phone hacking charges.  He was found guilty of phone hacking last year. Along with Coulson, former News of the World royal editor Clive Goodman also will be re-tried. Both face two charges of conspiring to commit misconduct in public office.  Goodman was previously jailed and pleaded guilty to phone hacking back in 2007. Coulson and Goodman’s retrial begins June 29. “He and Goodman were accused of paying £1,000 to a police officer at St James’s Palace for a copy of the royal directory known as the Green Book,” the Guardian reported. It was alleged Goodman organised the deal in January 2003, and Coulson approved payment by email.” Goodman and Coulson deny the claims, the BBC noted. Coulson was released from jail in […]

According to Mumbai police’s records, there has been a steep rise in credit card fraud cases registered across the city last year. The data shows that 183 cases were registered in 2014 as opposed to a mere 32 that were registered in 2013. The detection rate in 2014 was at a lowly 12 per cent with only 22 of 183 cases being solved. Incidentally detection rate in 2013 was 62.5 per cent. The Mumbai Police have claimed that spurt in the credit card frauds in Mumbai is primarily due to the boom of e-commerce websites. “This crime coincides with the increase of credit card usage online. Its a trend that we have observed and are probing. Currently there are numerous websites and some that are exceedingly popular. The dependency of the consumer has shifted from cash to pay by credit or debit cards, as that is the mode of payment for all purchases online,” said Dhananjay Kulkarni, deputy commissioner of police (detection) A senior cyber official shared that not all transactions made online on these e-commerce websites are secure. “When we type our password for Gmail, the main Goggle servers receives the password in a scrambled order that is their […]
