Message from the director

The NJRCFL began providing high quality digital evidence acquisition and analysis in November 2004 to all 21 counties and more than 500 law enforcement agencies throughout the Garden State. We are the first RCFL to open on the east coast.

Other operating RCFLs are located in Dallas (North Texas RCFL), San Diego (San Diego RCFL), Kansas City (Heart of America RCFL), Portland (Northwest RCFL), Denver (Rocky Mountain RCFL), Menlo Park (Silicon Valley RCFL), Chicago (Chicago RCFL), Houston (Greater Houston RCFL), Philadelphia (Philadelphia RCFL), Salt Lake City (Intermountain West RCFL), Buffalo (Western New York RCFL), Kentucky (Kentucky RCFL), Albuquerque (New Mexico RCFL), and Orange County (Orange County RCFL).

The NJRCFL is housed in a state-of-the-art forensic laboratory in the New Jersey State Police Technology Center centrally located in Hamilton, New Jersey. The NJRCFL is staffed with professional and skilled digital forensic examiners with varied levels of experience and knowledge in the wide array of investigations and digital forensic analysis of computers, personal data assistants (PDAs), cellular telephones, and video.

Our goal is to provide the highest quality, effective and efficient digital forensic services throughout the State of New Jersey to law enforcement departments and intelligence agencies. Many of our colleagues have experience supporting high profile cases like the Enron fraud investigation, the BTK serial murder, and tracking the 9/11 terrorists. The opportunity to serve in a dynamic and cutting-edge technology laboratory is an inspiration to the NJRCFL staff in the prestigious network as digital forensics examiners. We are ready to serve our community and nation by providing objective scientific analysis of digital evidence in terrorism, intelligence, and criminal investigative matters in New Jersey, the United States, and abroad.
