Stop.Think.Connect. Celebrates National Police Week

I’m passing on some information from the Stop.Think.Connect. Campaign.

This week the Stop.Think.Connect. Campaign is celebrating National Police Week. A tradition since 1962, National Police Week is a time to honor the tremendous efforts and sacrifices law enforcement officers make every day to help keep this country secure.

Today’s law enforcement officers continue to adapt to combat more advanced forms of crime, including cyber attacks, and online aspects of crimes like credit card theft and sexual harassment.

In commemoration of National Police Week, the Stop.Think.Connect. Campaign offers the following cybersecurity resources for law enforcement.

  • Stop.Think.Connect. Toolkit. This all-inclusive Campaign resource includes downloadable materials and links to other resources you can use to give presentations to a variety of audiences.
  • Internet Crimes Complaint Center (IC3). A partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the National White Collar Crime Center, the IC3 collects internet-related crime complaints for use by law enforcement and regulatory agencies at all levels.
  • United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT). US-CERT leads efforts to improve the nation's cybersecurity posture, coordinate cyber information sharing, and proactively manage cyber risks to the nation, which includes providing technical assistance to information system operators and sending out timely tips and notifications on security threats and vulnerabilities.
  • United States Secret Service (USSS) Electronic Crimes Task Force. The USSS’ Electronic Crimes task Force brings together state and local law enforcement, prosecutors, private sector interests, and academia to prioritize investigative cases that involve some form of electronic crime.
