BURLINGTON, Vt.—College students and Vermont law enforcement professionals have a new resource to help them hone their skills at conducting criminal investigations on computers, smartphones and other digital devices.
Officials gathered Monday at the new Patrick Leahy Center for Digital Investigation at Champlain College in Burlington.
The center provides a high-tech educational setting and a fully equipped, secure digital forensics lab.
Champlain President David Finney says the center will give students the opportunity to work on real-world projects in a supervised environment.
Vermont U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy helped secure a series of federal grants that Champlain used to help set up the center.
