Lindon, Utah -- In 1998 Congress enacted the Technology Transfer Program to answer the issue of out-of-date technology within the nation's law enforcement agencies. The program, sponsored by the Office of National Drug Control Policy -- Counter Drug Technology Assessment Center, provides the equipment and training to law enforcement agencies with an identified need for the equipment related to counterdrug missions at no cost to the agencies. AccessData Corporation, a provider of software products and training to government, law enforcement agencies and corporate investigators, has been selected to be a supplier in the Technology Transfer Program in 2006 and 2007.
Dave Sannar, President of AccessData Corp., said, "We are honored to be among the few selected to participate in the Technology Transfer Program. We realize the importance of such a program to ensure that all local and state agencies have the opportunity to acquire tier-one technologies in the fight against criminal activity."
In addition to receiving the computer forensics software, agencies will also receive training at the intermediate and advanced levels in order to improve effectiveness in using the tools. Investigators will also be given a comprehensive forensic work station capable of taking the investigator through a case, beginning to end. According to Sannar, "This complete bundle of software, training and hardware will be the ultimate toolkit for any agency fighting crime where a digital device was involved."
