Cyber Protection Unit

The Cyber Protection Unit, which is comprised of Assistant District Attorneys, Massachusetts State Police detectives, and civilian Forensic Investigators, is focused on stopping the predatory abuse of the Internet, cell phones and other communication devices. The team investigates and prosecutes cases where computers have been used either to commit crimes or to store evidence of crimes, such as the sexual exploitation of children.

The Unit also conducts prevention and intervention trainings for law enforcement, schools and community groups.
