LCDI: The Leahy Center for Digital Investigation


Since 2010, the Leahy Center for Digital Investigation (LCDI) has been a pioneer in computer forensic education. As a branch of Champlain College, the center has provided students with the opportunity to have real world experience in the field by participating in professional-level lab work at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The LCDI provides computer forensics and digital investigation operational support, training, research, and other technical services to assist law enforcement agencies in Vermont, and throughout the nation, in areas related to computer forensics and other digital investigations.

Students are exposed to real world situations in the digital field.

The main goal of the LCDI is to advance the field of computer forensics and digital investigation practice, with a particular focus on law enforcement and the public sector. It is to be a center of education, training, and information resources for digital investigation, computer forensics,  law enforcement, government, and higher education communities. Through commitment to these goals, we hope to continue to provide quality work for the whole of the forensics community.

Why Computer Forensics?
