OSINT Training Facts

Social Media Use in Law Enforcement

According to a 2014 survey conducted by the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Center for Social Media, 95% of agencies surveyed use social media, and 55.9% of the agencies not currently using social media are considering its adoption. Most impressively, 78.8% of agencies surveyed reported that social media has helped them solve crimes in their jurisdiction.

Private Investigator License Requirements

Private investigation legislation in Ontario covers most activities in which an individual conducts paid investigation activities into an individual or organization. In order to become a licensed private investigator in Ontario, a person must be at least 18 years of age, be eligible to work in Canada, possess a clean criminal record, pass a basic training course and the licensing exam, and be approved by the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services.
