High Technology Crime Division

Today’s information technology presents society with many new opportunities. Unfortunately, many individuals have chosen to use that technology as an opportunity to commit serious crimes. Understanding that the internet has created new challenges for law enforcement, the District Attorney’s Office is committed to combating the growing threat of cybercrime to the public.

To that end, the District Attorney's Office has created the High Technology Crime Division, a group of specially trained prosecutors and investigators, to stem the proliferation of cybercrime. As a member of the Southern California High Technology Task Force, the High Technology Crime Division works with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies to prosecute cases involving  identity theft, computer hacking, theft of high-tech computer components, counterfeit computer software, theft of trade secrets, internet auction fraud, and child exploitation on the internet.

The High Technology Crime Division provides technical support and forensic services for the District Attorney’s ever growing number of cases involving computers or other high-tech devices. Additionally, members of High Technology Crime Division provides training to law enforcement and prosecution offices throughout the State of California on cybercrime issues.
