PORTLAND, Oregon, Feb. 01 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Exterro Inc., the preferred provider of Legal GRC software specifically designed for in-house legal, privacy and IT teams at Global 2000 and AmLaw 200 organizations, today proudly announced the first five recipients of the grants from Exterro Law Enforcement Grant Program. These deserving law enforcement agencies will receive software and training packages worth thousands of dollars, including a one-year subscription to the FTK Digital Forensic Toolkit software suite and Exterro Forensics Training Pass for a unlimited training for one year.

Law enforcement agencies have relied on FTK technology for more than three decades, using it to bring criminals to justice and end terrorism, human trafficking, child exploitation, cybercrime and other crimes. Now that FTK is part of Exterro’s technology suite, Exterro has created this grant program to demonstrate its continued commitment to the law enforcement professionals who serve our communities.

Among many deserving applicants, the following five law enforcement agencies will receive grants:

  • Liberty Police Department, Liberty, North Carolina
  • Shelby Township Police, Shelby Township, MI
  • Lake Havasu City Police Department, Topock, AZ
  • Scott County Sheriff’s Office, Davenport, IA
  • Venice Police Department, Venice, Florida

These agencies, like many others, face budgetary challenges that limit their ability to process digital evidence. As one grant recipient explained, “Our budget is extremely limited; this year, we probably won’t be able to replace several aging vehicles that are barely functional. We do not have the capacity to process any type of digital evidence in-house and must outsource all processing of this type of evidence. It’s expensive, time-consuming and has hampered us considerably in many surveys.

Exterro Vice President of Sales Trey Tramonte helped launch the grant program. He said, “We are delighted to launch the Exterro Law Enforcement Grants Program, which was originally launched by AccessData in 2008. Our goal is to help law enforcement agencies law enforcement access to the technology they need to work on their cases and bring criminals to justice in a timely manner. Too many agencies still depend on sending their data to the FBI’s regional computer forensics labs or to the forensic labs of other state agencies, which have backlogs exceeding 12 months in many cases.

Exterro’s Law Enforcement Grant Program awards five grant recipients twice per calendar year. To learn more about the program or to apply for grants, visit its home page on Exterro.com.
