Chief of Police
|Digital Forensic Unit|
The New Britain Police Department has one of the oldest and among the most complete Digital Forensic Labs in the state. This unit is equipped with the latest technology and employs the most advanced current techniques to recover and preserve high technology evidence. The Unit is supervised by Lt. Christopher Chute. Sergeant Michael Grossi is also assigned to this unit. Personnel assigned to examine digital evidence receive the highest level of training and maintain certifications and affiliations with national professional associations.
The Digital Forensics Unit examines digital devices and extracts, recovers, or copies data contained within these devices in manner which creates the best evidence which is used to either support or dispute a reported fact. The digital evidence examinations are conducted in without bias just as in any laboratory setting. The data recovered (the evidence) will speak for itself. The digital evidence examined includes, computers, hard drives, thumb drives, digital cameras, digital video recorders, cell phones, GPS devices, and so much more. If the device can store data which may be related to a crime, it is likely the Digital Forensic Unit will be examining the item and recovering evidence from it.
