Police, students combat cybercrime
Under the agreement, computer science students will work with the Tulsa police to help them investigate child pornography, fraud and forgery, identity theft and other crimes committed via computers, said Detective Scott Wanzer of the Cyber Crimes Unit.
The office will be located in a refurbished building on the university campus and will be staffed by five officers and as many as six students at a time depending on the project, Wanzer said. On a daily basis, the ratio likely will be one officer to one student, he said.
The arrangement makes sense, Wanzer said. The student interns gain real-world experience by learning what a forensic investigator does, and the officers gain expertise in new software tools, research and techniques.
