(Hillsboro, Arnold) The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office and the Arnold Police Department are planning on working together when it comes to setting up equipment to analyze and break into smartphones in order to solve crimes. According to Jefferson County Sheriff Dave Marshak, Arnold PD will be providing an officer to help work on these types of crimes.
Sheriff Marshak says smartphones contain so much data that could help solve cases, it’s just a matter of having the right technology to retrieve it.
Sheriff Marshak says this is one of the first steps to getting this type of equipment to be placed in the future crime lab. He hopes the equipment will be up and running in the next 6 to 8 months.
