Digital Forensics

An image of the CCFE LogoDigital Forensics – Our certified computer forensic examiners utilize specialized skills, equipment, and software to extract data from computers, storage devices, and data components. This includes digital video recorders, cameras, hard drives, as well as cellular and mobile devices. The world of digital data is becoming more complex, and in turn, so has recovering the data. Our Digital Forensic examiners are certified in recovering and analyzing data from the even most complex forms of digital storage. This includes data which was previously deleted or erased.

Before data on digital devices can be interpreted, it must be extracted. We specialize in recovery of data extraction from devices which have been damaged from smoke, water, fire, or mechanical damages. Devices can be damaged to the extent that the digital data is destroyed, however, many times the data can still be recovered by the careful handling and meticulous extraction techniques utilized by our certified forensic analysts. This delicate process is completed, all while maintaining evidence-handling procedures to ensure what the analysis recovers can be admitted into court.

We offer video and digital photography of any incident or large scale scene as well as other applications to be able to provide additional resources to help with evaluation, totality views and magnitude of a given incident. This is accomplished by utilization of our unmanned Aerial Drone which is operated above the incident location with digital imaging recordings of target specific locations.


Computer Fire and 3-D Modeling – Computer fire modeling is utilized as a tool to test hypothesis for fire causation. Computer fire modeling is a more economical approach to assist in validation of a hypothesis, as opposed to constructing representative models, or burn cells. The scene data is used in mathematical equations to create a fire model to assist the fire investigator with validation and testing of the hypotheses, as outlined within the scientific method. 3-D modeling is used as a tool to bring a visual effect to your fire incident to assist with illustrating the structure and related fire incident.

This can all be used in a case as evidence. Often times, images and videos of an incident are posted on a Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or other social media profiles to share with friends and family, and even publicly, for our certified Social Media Intelligence Analysts to find. This evidence can help provide a major insight into witness and photographic documentation.

Not only are photos and videos of the aftermath posted, but in many instances we find additional evidence which provides supportive information related to individual cases. Text posts and incriminating images are displayed publicly onto individuals profiles. All of this evidence is out there just waiting to be found!
