Searching the Marketplace

Courses in the FirstForward Marketplace may be found by entering simple keywords. These search terms are used to match against course titles, course descriptions, topic areas, class locations, and the name of the vendor providing the training.

You may further refine the keyword search by including special commands:

  • To match the beginning and end of a word, include * in the middle of a keyword as wildcard (e.g., crim*s)
  • To match a specific phrase, add double quotes (e.g., "in the field")
  • To require words, add + before the word or phrase (e.g., +enforcement)
  • To exclude words, add - before the word or phrase (e.g., -structure)

Except when an exact match is required, the Marketplace search will attempt to match similar words, including partial matches and some misspellings.

Driven by live demonstration of investigative tools, this innovative course includes tools for researching, collecting and exploiting social media data about persons of interest to law enforcement investigations while maintaining awareness of operations security.

Additional learning goals include:
- Identify digital footprints every user leaves on the internet, learn to view websites undetected
- Practice tools for profiling individuals online and mapping social network/ online identity
- Introduce tools for image metadata analysis and exploiting online images
- Organize and improve case management through RSS-powered searches and website monitoring
- Practice search tools for social media sites, including specialized tools for geolocation and target characteristics
