Course Information 

***** 4 CLE Course on Dec 5th *****

Instructor: Art Bowker
Date: December 4th
Topic :Social Media Investigations for Court Officers, Probation, and Corrections

Approximately 78 percent of North American residents were online in 2012. Facebook, the current social networking leader had approximately 930 million worldwide users on September 30, 2012.

Clearly, citizens, including defendant and offender populations are using social media.  This has important implications for court officers, be they probation officers or bailiffs.  Social media (SM) investigations can reveal whether a defendant is truly remorseful about their conduct or is merely portraying sorry to get a lenient sentence.  SM investigations can also reveal non-compliance on pretrial supervision or while on probation.  Additionally, SM investigations can provide insight into a defendant/offender's friends/associates and whereabouts if the abscond.

This training will expose participants to these kinds of investigations, basic techniques, and will also focus on four areas of interest identified in the American Probation and Parole Association issue paper The Use of Social Media in Community Corrections, adopted on August 27, 2014.

This one-day course will provide probation, parole, and court officers with the appropriate software application tools to conduct ethical digital research and gather evidence for pre-sentence investigations, post-release supervision and threats to court security.

Instructor: Jack M. Hall
Date: December 5th ***** 4 CLE Course *****
