Digital forensics expert Chris Wood said the technology is already being used to trace a range of financial crimes.
“The digital forensic industry is a real gold mine for the police,” he said.
“We are going to see more and more digital forensically focused forensics being used by police in the near future.”
It is a good thing to see the industry start to really push the envelope on this kind of technology.
“Mr Wood said he had seen police officers use digital forennsics to identify stolen banknotes.”
They’ve been using digital forenisomics to identify money, but also stolen banknote.
“I have seen a lot of police officers, as well as the coronial police and the coronavirus teams, use this technology to get a good look at money,” he explained.
“When you see police officers using this technology, they will see a picture of a cashier and say ‘that looks suspicious’.”
Mr Wood, who is a partner at law firm Wood & Mackenzie, said digital forena is a “real gold mine” for police.
“There are a number of agencies across the world that use it to identify people,” he noted.
“For example, the Australian Crime Commission uses this to identify offenders using a digital fingerprint.”
Digital forensics can be used to track a range for money, banknotes, other assets, vehicles and so on.
“He said digital forensic tools were already being deployed by police to track criminals across the globe.”
This technology is becoming increasingly prevalent across the country,” Mr Wood said.
Mr Wood is not the only one who has used digital forencis to track money.
A number of other law enforcement agencies have been using this technique to track stolen bankcards.
In April, the NSW Police Force, New South Wales Police, Queensland Police and the Western Australian Crime Investigation Squad also used digital fingerprint technology to track $5,000 cash taken from a Sydney bank.”
All of these organisations are doing the right thing,” Mr Woods said.
