Seizing and analyzing Digital Evidence is the primary function of the members assigned to the Computer Forensic Laboratory, and they are established leaders in the development of forensic practices and operating procedures.

The members of the Unit are currently involved in improving the tools for the evaluation and collection of Digital Evidence in the field, and are continually streamlining and improving the examination of Digital Evidence in the Laboratory.

In 2003, the Computer Forensic Laboratory completed analysis on 58 cases and a staggering 1.5 million megabytes of data - the equivalent of analyzing the data on 75 tractor-trailers full of printed documents or 1 million floppy disks.
