Press Release
Fort Bend County District Attorney’s Office

District Attorney Investigator John Bohannon recently graduated from a 5-week course in computer forensics at the National Computer Forensic Institute.  Sponsored by the U.S. Secret Service and Alabama Office of Prosecution Services, Bohannon completed a rigorous training program that gives him the expertise to recover digital evidence.  The high-caliber training was sponsored in full by the institute at no cost to Fort Bend County.  The District Attorney’s Office also received an estimated $25,000 in specialized equipment for Bohannon to apply his newly acquired skills to local criminal investigations.

“The benefit to the citizens of our county is immeasurable,” remarked Healey.  “As technology advances, so does crime.  We have computers to be analyzed immediately and needed our own expert.  Our continued pursuit of quality training means we can now offer Fort Bend County better prosecutions without having to rely on outside experts at a substantially higher cost.”

The National Computer Forensic Institute (NCFI) is nationally recognized as the leading hi-tech crime training facility and has been endorsed by the Department of Homeland Security, the Association of Chiefs of Police and the Major County Sheriff’s Association.  Federally funded, the institute is dedicated to instructing state and local officials in digital evidence and cyber-crime investigations.  The training model is based upon the Secret Service’s successful cyber investigative strategy which partners law enforcement with academia and private industry.  In the absence of NCFI, the forensics investigations performed by graduates would either not have been conducted or have been forwarded to federal agencies where they may not receive a priority.  With NCFI training, the graduate’s agency now has the capability and resources to conduct their own examinations.

Bohannon joined the Fort Bend County District Attorney’s Office in February 2011 after more than 19 years with the Bellaire Police Department.  Originally licensed in Michigan, where he spent several years as a police officer, Bohannon eventually moved to Texas and was certified as a peace officer here.  Last year, Bohannon was certified as a Fraud Examiner for the Fort Bend County District Attorney’s Office.
