Law Enforcement Personnel Dress for Success with CRU® Ditto® Field Kit L-1

With soft case, CRU WiebeTech® Ditto Forensic FieldStation and forensic tools
Agents are more successful with “knock and talk” searches, imaging digital content

Vancouver, WA — January 27, 2015 — Looks matter when law enforcement first arrives for a “knock and talk” to inquire about possible criminal activity. The CRU® Ditto Field Kit L-1 gives law enforcement personnel the look with a highly portable, unobtrusive soft-case kit containing the first of its kind CRU WiebeTech Ditto Forensic FieldStation and all the essential tools for quick analysis of loose media and data storage.

“We heard from our customers that softening the look of the kits will open a lot of doors for the personnel who have been deployed with CRU Ditto Forensic FieldStations in the field,” said Randal Barber, President and CEO of CRU. “This CRU Ditto Field Kit will help law enforcement, anti-terrorism agents, corrections officers making visits to parolees, and others be successful in conducting warrantless searches of digital content.”

The kit features the CRU Ditto Forensic FieldStation. which can be deployed in the field by personnel with no formal forensic training. Note that the Ditto Forensic FieldStation features logical and physical imaging capabilities, while allowing forensics specialists to administer and operate data acquisition and transport remotely, providing quick analysis of digital information, saving time and money.

In December, CRU released a firmware upgrade so all existing and future Ditto Forensic FieldStations can support digital investigation and data acquisition from CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray Discs.

Along with the CRU Ditto FieldStation, the CRU Ditto Field Kit L-1 includes a WiebeTech Media WriteBlocker, DVD reader, power supply and all required cables–everything needed to access SATA drives, PATA drives, eSATA storage devices, USB devices, SD cards, CompactFlash cards, Memory Sticks, CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray Discs.

“The CRU Ditto Forensic FieldStation with Logical Imaging has transformed how forensic and digital investigations are conducted,” said Barber. “This new Ditto Field Kit gives law enforcement a little something extra to get in and quickly get the evidence needed to make an arrest or prevent a crime.”
