Hi-tech Crime Unit Outsourcing (FOI)

Hi-tech Crime Unit Outsourcing (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by States of Jersey and published on 07 December 2017.


In the last six years what outsourcing has been obtained by the States of Jersey Police Hi-tech Crime Unit as regards:


How many investigations per year have included the examination of digital media by outsourced persons / organisations


Which persons / organisations were the contracts awarded to and where are they based.


What was the cost per year of Hi-Tech Crime investigations / examinations outsourced broken down into i) cost of examinations / reports produced ii) cost of accommodation.



The workload of the Hi-Tech crime unit has increased dramatically, year on year. As a result, the States of Jersey Police can build up a backlog of examinations that require qualified, temporary resources to assist in clearing this volume work.

The majority of work involves the examination of computers and backlog of mobile phone examinations. It is not possible to quantify the number of cases as the company charges on a time basis not per case. No details of individual cases will be given.


The company used is Forensic Footprints, based in the UK.
