Mobile technology is on a steep upward curve and most criminals now operate using mobile devices. So, to ensure that no stone is left unturned, police forces need to not only have the correct forensic software in place, they also need to have the knowhow to operate the equipment and not just by simply reading the manual.
As criminals innovate, so must the police. Relying solely on technology can be detrimental to an investigation and investigators should apply human rationale while operating the forensic technology to better understand the criminal and the patterns that manifest.
