Comp Crime First Half

New York State (NYS) enacted Penal Law (PL) statutes relating to computer crime in 1986, because of rising public outcry concerning increased computer crime. The larceny section of the NYS PL originally covered computer crime. The larceny articles proved inadequate as technology rapidly evolved. With this new legislation written, law enforcement agencies could now mount cases against criminals that use computers in the commission of a crime. This research will provide a brief history on the evolution of computer crime along with an explanation of related terms. Most importantly, this research will examine the need for a dedicated computer crime unit in Suffolk County. This study will test the hypothesis that in order to be successful in the prosecution of computer crime cases, the Suffolk County Police Department (SCPD) must establish a dedicated computer crime unit that is staffed by technically proficient investigators; otherwise computer crime in Suffolk County will continue to increase.
