Abstract

Over the last two decades the problem of cybercrime has increased dramatically, though there are few statistics available on the prevalence of cybercrimes making it difficult to document their scope. Exploring the perceptions of law enforcement who deal with these crimes on a regular basis may provide valuable insights into the prevalence and incidence of cybercrimes. This study utilizes a sample of officers who received digital forensics training from the National White Collar Crime Center to identify their views on the frequency and severity of multiple forms of cybercrime, as well as identify any prospective correlates for their attitudes.
