Cybercrime

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office has the largest local prosecutorial unit dedicated to computer-related crime in the nation and has been an international leader in the prosecution and investigation of high-technology crime.

Cyber Crime Division prosecutors are trained to handle computer-related crimes. Investigators assigned to the High Technology Crime Unit operate a forensic laboratory that features a state-of-the-art clean room and electronic evidence vault.

The office’s prosecutors and investigators have become internationally recognized leaders who have trained thousands of criminal justice professionals throughout Los Angeles County, California and the United States. Whenever there is an attack on Los Angeles County’s computer infrastructure, the District Attorney’s Cyber Investigation Response Team has been tapped to resolve security breaches. The squad responded to an increasing number of cyberthreats on the county’s computer network.
