NASSAU, Bahamas, - Five members of the Rhode Island National Guard traveled here to conduct a digital forensics workshop with members of the Royal Bahamas Police and Defence Forces at the Royal Bahamas Police Force College. 

The workshop focused on using computer forensics technology in law enforcement cases to assist in the prosecution of suspects. 

About 20 officers and marines from the two organizations participated in the three-day event from Aug. 17-19 to discuss a myriad of topics including procedures for better utilizing digital data, presenting digital forensic findings, and maximizing network protections. 

The Rhode Island contingent was led by Army Maj. Alan White, a network security specialist and an adjunct professor at Roger Williams University.  

This is the second workshop on information technology in a series of exchanges under the State Partnership Program sponsored by the Rhode Island National Guard. The first exchange on this topic was held in April at HMBS Coral Harbour with members of the Royal Bahamas Police and Defence Forces.
