Investigative and policing issues

Computers have revolutionised the investigation of traditional crime and have opened up a new sphere for the investigation of high-tech crimes where ICT equipment or data are the object for the offending or the tool for the commission of an offence. Those who investigate high tech crime are faced with many opportunities and challenges. The biggest problems are not to do with the laws of evidence but rather with search and seizure, the scale of material that is available, the volatility of data and the degree of anonymity available using ICT.
