ANTI-cyber crime experts from the United States Department of State Anti-Terrorist Assistance yesterday started a 12-day training on audio-video forensic investigation for members of the Philippine National Police Criminal Investigation and Detection Group.

CIDG chief Director Leon Nilo A. de la Cruz said participants in the US-sponsored course are CIDG agents who are US-certified forensic experts.

“The training will further boost our men’s expertise in investigating modern technology-related crimes using the Internet and this time, gadgets emitting sounds and images,” he said.

Ed Schlachter of the US ATAP Regional Security Office and Mike Alcron, a US State Department program manager, are heading the training which ends on March 18.
