The Lancaster County District Attorney’s Office was awarded $22,312.00 from the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency. The funding was made available through the federal National Forensic Science Improvement Act. The funds will be used for the purchase of a Cellebrite UFED 4 Pc Kit and advanced computer and cell phone analysis training for a county detective.
The Cellebrite UFED (Universal Forensic Extraction Device) supports the extraction of data from hundreds of cellular telephones and tablet PC's available on the market today from all Wireless Providers. It is currently in use by many Local, County, State, and Federal Agencies around the world. Cellebrite is a leader in the field of data recovery and evidence preservation from mobile devices.
The Computer Forensic Unit of the Office of the District Attorney has been using Cellebrite for the past three years and has forensically examined hundreds of mobile devices, which have proven to be a valuable asset to Law Enforcement Agencies.
The UFED 4PC is truly portable and can be readily used in both the lab and field setting.
We are extremely pleased to receive this award. It will definitely help us solve crimes and protect the community
