Taking A "Byte" Out of Hi-Tech Crime

Operation Vigilance 2013

In 2011, the Yolo County District Attorney's Office formed a High-Tech Unit to deal with the increasing amount of digital evidence in criminal cases. Almost every major criminal case now includes evidence from cell phones, computers, cameras, game consoles and more.  Utilizing the skills of highly trained forensic examiners, the High-Tech Unit provides critical evidence and testimony in cases ranging from homicide, rape and child molestation to cases involving narcotics and larceny.
