This guide is an Association of Chief Police Officers’ (ACPO) publication written in association with the Association of Chief Police Officers Scotland and is aimed principally at police officers, police staff, and private sector investigators working in conjunction with law enforcement. However, this document will be of relevance to other agencies and corporate entities involved in the investigation and prosecution of incidents or offences which require the collection and examination of digital evidence. It is appreciated that they may make use of this guide. Recognising this, the generic terms investigator and law enforcement have been used wherever possible.
