About Us
Since 1978, NW3C has developed and delivered economic crime investigation, high-tech crime investigation, digital forensics, criminal intelligence, and other criminal justice training and technical assistance. Federal funding allows us to provide training and other services at no cost to state, local, tribal, and territorial criminal justice practitioners throughout the United States. Understanding that criminals and crime do not stop at jurisdictional or geographic boundaries, NW3C uses other funding sources to develop and deliver similar high-quality, industry-leading training to federal agencies, the private sector, and criminal justice professionals worldwide.
