Thomas J. Holt – Surveying the State of Research On Policing Cybercrime: Local to Transnational Gaps

Presented at the SERENE-RISC Workshop, 2017 October.

This presentation will provide an overview of the current state of criminological scholarship on policing cybercrimes. The current body of knowledge regarding line officers’ perceptions of cybercrime will be considered, as well as our knowledge of the specialized roles of forensic examiners. The limitations of this research will be considered, along with possible directions for future study, such as the views of detectives, chiefs of police, and federal/national agents. The benefits of this research agenda will be discussed for both practitioners and academics alike.
