Identifying and Intercepting School Violence Through Cyber Investigations
Detective Richard Wistocki (Ret.) was a law enforcement officer for 30 years, 28 of which were with the Naperville Police Department. In his last 22 years as an Internet Crimes Investigator with the Naperville Police Department, he has forged numerous partnerships with the community and other Law Enforcement Agencies. He has been a SWAT operator / Sniper for the past 22 years. He is one of the founding members and an affiliate member of the Illinois Attorney Generals High Tech Crimes Bureau (ICAC). Rich’s passion is concentrated in teaching parents how to parent their children while online. He takes his juvenile investigations experience and applies it to teaching parents how to be better parents. He is an instructor for the Department of Justice and various Law Enforcement Mobile Training Units and POST units across the United States. He is also the creator of the Illinois Sexting Law. Recently, Detective Rich Wistocki has developed a FREE Online tool for SRO’s and School Officials to use in cases of Sexting, Cyber-Bullying and the new Illinois SB100 legislation. This tool is JuvenileJusticeOnline.org and it is not only a case management system, but a free training site for school administrators, SRO’s, Juvenile Officers, Probation and States Attorney’s.
Course Description: Law Enforcement and School Officials need to obtain the proper information when responding to threats of school violence online. Especially when there is “Leakage” and the posting party is targeting students and school personnel. It is important for the LEO/School Administrator to obtain crucial information and evidence in these cases and initiate due process paperwork in a timely manner. The LEO will then continue the investigation and use the Exigent Circumstances protocol to get the appropriate information. Identifying the perpetrator immediately provides Law Enforcement and Schools the ability to act quickly and proactively to reduce the threat of school shootings and other forms of violence.
