The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), in coordination with the National Academy of Public Security (ANSP -law enforcement academy) and the National Civil Police (PNC), started the third edition of the  Basic Course on Cybercrime Investigation. The course started on June 13, 2016, and will end on July 8, 2016. The course is being implemented in the city of San Miguel, the second largest-city of El Salvador.

The objective of the course is to strengthen knowledge on information and communications technologies and on digital forensics, as well as on the use of technological tools and techniques for the investigation of cybercrime. The course was designed by PNC Cybercrime Unit with technical assistance of UNODC under UNODC Global Programme on Cybercrime. Nineteen investigators from El Salvador Eastern region will be trained on this course.

The course is focused on learning basic computer concepts, typology and definition of cybercrime, applicable law, procedures and best practices on investigation, and digital forensics. The course is developed thanks to the financial resources provided by the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) of the Embassy of the United States in El Salvador under the project GLOX76 "Strengthening of the capacities of El Salvador National Police to effectively identify and investigate cybercrime cases".
