Training: Research & Social Media Techniques for Investigators

April 26, 2017
8am - 3pm
Manheim Auto Auction, 1190 Lancaster Road, Manheim, PA 17545

The Pennsylvania Auto Theft Prevention Authority (ATPA), in partnership with the Northern Lancaster County Regional Police Department, will conduct a training program on Research and Social Media Techniques. This program will feature classroom instruction by Joe Stephenson, Managing Director of SIU for Hagerty Insurance. Coffee breaks and lunch will be provided.

This presentation provides the investigator with information on how to better secure results from the Internet and social media platforms to gain relevant information in less time. We will discuss Google internal functions, the use of ‘operators’ in a Google search, and how to use Google to access social media content, including cross content postings – all without needing login information. Learn how to locate, identify and then extract information from various social media platforms, like Facebook, Twitter & Instagram. An emphasis will be placed on Facebook, with instruction on how to find so-called hidden data from seemingly private profiles, as well as an introduction into URL manipulation & learning how to locate profiles using non-traditional information (such as age, gender, profession, and likes). How to create a covert profile will be discussed, as well as image metadata, mapping analysis, and we will explore a number of free third party websites that will assist you in refining data, building link analysis, and more.

NO fee for this training
Municipal offers will earn 6 MPOETC CLEE credits for completing the program
