Hi-Tech Crimes

The function of the Hi-Tech Crimes Unit is to address the complex investigations of Internet and computer related crimes. Computers and other Hi-Tech devices play an important role in everybody’s life today. There is a significant need for law enforcement to keep pace with the current trends and methods criminals are using within our community and around the world.

The Merced Police Department recognizes this need and as a result has developed the Hi-Tech Crimes Unit. The unit is currently a member of the Sacramento Valley Hi-Tech Crimes Task Force.

The types of crimes that the unit has investigated or assisted in includes, identity theft, child molestation and exploitation, possession and distribution of child pornography, Internet frauds, computer hacking, forgery, homicides, missing persons, assaults with deadly weapons, and gang related crimes. The Merced Police Department has established a computer forensics lab that is capable of providing electronic evidence from a variety of electronic devices. The Hi-Tech Unit provides support to other units at the Merced Police Department and other agencies in the law enforcement community.
