Course DescriptionThe United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS/HSI) and the Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) are presenting two sessions of a one-day training designed to provide investigators with foundational knowledge of what “Dark Web” and “Virtual Currency” are, and how to identify indicators of such activity during search warrant service and encounters with individuals utilizing such technology.  Attendees will also identify resources available when conducting investigations which may encompass such activity.
