Eugene, Ore. – Lane County Sheriff’s Office detectives will soon have access to new software that will aid them in processing digital evidence.
Operation Underground Railroad, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that works to protect children from sex trafficking and exploitation, has donated $3,000 to the Lane County Sheriff’s Office. This donation will be used to purchase Griffeye, a software that analyzes digital evidence, including photos and videos, and can be programmed to detect illegal images such as child pornography.
Detectives currently have to manually analyze every single piece of digital evidence, an inefficient and mentally taxing process. The donation will fund the software purchase for two years and should result in more efficient detection and analysis of digital evidence.
