Have you ever wondered what it’s like to work on a 24-month wiretap?  Join Investigative Analyst Paul Swartz as he takes you through OCDETF case “Operation Spinning Wheels;” the ups and downs and challenges for agents, analysts, tech agents, and prosecutors which occurred during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This presentation will demonstrate how PenLink helped in the historical analysis of Cellebrite downloads and CDRs with cell-site and then the prospective collection and monitoring of 50 pen registers with cell-site, 71 GPS and 22 T-III wiretaps.

This webinar will cover:

  • How to use PLX to conduct court-authorized electronic surveillance such as pen registers, cell-site, GPS, and T-III wiretapping of telephones.
  • The benefits and advantages as well as the pitfalls and limitations of conducting electronic surveillance over a long period of time.
