Loving My New Gig!

Last Monday I started my new gig as a Mobile Forensic Investigator and I am loving it thus far! My unit deals in a lot of things and I will be the mobile forensic specialist, but will also be allowed to learn and participate in their activities as well. It is nice to be treated as an adult again (been quite a few years since I've experienced that) and my addition appears to be valued. Also, looks like I have an excellent shot at becoming a Detective within a year. Finally, I get to work with just about every unit in the Division and that is proving to be pretty exciting. I also started my first case today and it's a perfect one to begin with. Actually getting to put the knowledge from my Master's coursework into practice and it appears my train of thought is in the right place.

    This reminds me of a Law and Order SVU episode I was watching today. Suspect IP was 1192.316.2178.413. Been trying to ping it all night.

    Hoping to make the case for GMOB and GASF, both of which I definitely think can happen.

    All kidding aside. Yes you should be wearing gloves when examining cell phones.

    I'd say roughly 90% of the phones I examine have pornography of some kind on them (legal and illegal).

    So in one hand they're looking at the pornography and in the other hand they're... icon_bounce.gif

    Yep! Not to mention the bloody phones that were pulled off bodies, or the ones that were in a rotting corpse's pocket.

    I never knew a phone could smell sooooo bad.
