Training has been provided in computer forensics and financial analysis as a step toward fighting organised crime and strengthening the Peruvian police's intelligence systems
Within the framework of the European Union cooperation project, financed and managed by the FIIAPP to support the fight against illegal drug trafficking and organised crime in Peru, a workshop on computer forensics and another on financial analysis have been given.
The purpose of both activities was to improve inter-institutional coordination between the Public Ministry, the Judiciary and the National Police of Peru on the subject of investigations to fight cybercrime particularly computer crime, and to learn about matters related to the improvement of intelligence systems within the different directorates of the National Police of Peru, particularly in relation to money laundering.
Each five-day workshop explored theoretical and practical aspects and included conversations and exchanges of experiences among the participants to improve understanding as well as trust between the different officials.
The financial analysis workshop, given by two members of the Spanish National Police was attended by 60 members of the different directorates of the National Police of Peru. Among the salient matters discussed were financial crimes and money laundering, research methodology in relation to this criminal typology and sources of information. Very close support was given in group work sessions dealing with practical cases to put the theoretical knowledge presented into practice.
, The forensic computing workshop was attended by four magistrates, six prosecutors and 40 members of different directorates of the National Police of Peru. It was taught by two members of the Ministry of the Interior, in this case from the Guardia Civil and the National Police. During theoretical and practical work sessions, aspects related to home searches, the analysis of digital evidence, the chain of custody and working with specialised tools were analysed.
