On Monday, November 14, 2011 Senator Patrick Leahy visited the Leahy Center for 

Digital Investigation.

Adopted from Patrick Leahy’s website: 

Since 2006 Leahy has secured $1.15 million in Department of Justice Bureau of Justice Assistance grants to provide educational and technical support to Vermont law enforcement agencies, relating to crime-solving digital enforcement issues. 

After receiving the grants, Champlain College invested additional college funds in building a secure facility and a teaching lab at the new Miller Center.  The project has also received material support from, and maintains operational relationships, with the Burlington Police Department, the Vermont State Police and the Vermont Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC).

The LCDI is housed on Champlain College’s campus and offers various services to 
local, state and federal law enforcement entities. Computer Forensic, Cyber
Investigation, Research and related services also extend to the corporate arena.

One of the primary purposes of the LCDI is to give students an opportunity to intern 
with a real world forensic laboratory while studying at Champlain College. This is not
only focused on digital forensic students, but any student that can contribute to the
mission and goals of the Center.
