Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $235,000)

This training improves the investigators understanding of the fundamentals of Peer to Peer (P2P) and provides a chance to use P2P Marshal to automate the acquisition and analysis of evidence.

With NIJ funding (2009-DN-BX-K211), ATC-NY's P2P Forensic Training has been held 22 times and have trained 375 law enforcement personnel in 16 states. ATC-NY's courses have received high marks on evaluation questionnaires and host organizations have invited us to return. With NIJ support, ATC-NY will make this training widely available to state and local investigators, at no cost to participants.

In the proposed year-long effort, ATC-NY will hold a minimum of 12 one-day training classes, accommodating 20 to 45 students each. Their goal is to train approximately 300 students. ATC-NY has been very successful securing training sites for our P2P Forensics Training in the past and have already received offers to host P2P Marshal training in several states.
