Criminal activity has always sought to remain hidden from law enforcement.  Traditionally, this often meant committing crimes at night, without witnesses, or finding physical ways to disguise or confuse the offender’s identity (e.g. masks, attire, speed).   Online environments present new opportunities for criminals, as physical contact is reduced and more daily activity (particularly financial) takes place on the internet.  Even then, there is a specific portion of the internet in which there has been significant criminal enterprise – the Dark Web.  The “dark” portion of the internet (dark web within the dark net) uses both encryption and anonymization not seen in the “surface web,” which can stymie criminal investigators. This webinar will cover the history and background of the Dark Web, the unique challenges presented for criminal investigators, case studies of successful investigations, and what the most significant needs are to get law enforcement apace with criminal activity on the Dark Web.




The Police Executive Research Forum (PERF) is an independent research organization that focuses on critical issues in policing. Since its founding in 1976, PERF has identified best practices on fundamental issues such as reducing police use of force; developing community policing and problem-oriented policing; using technologies to deliver police services to the community; and evaluating crime reduction strategies. Through its membership of 3,000 police chiefs, sheriffs, researchers and other officials, PERF strives to advance professionalism in policing and to improve the delivery of police services through the exercise of strong national leadership; public debate of police and criminal justice issues; and research and policy development.
