Fluke Australia presents the AirCheck Wi-Fi Testers at the annual Crimes Against Children Conference 2011 in Dallas, Texas. It is the AirCheck Wi-Fi Testers that law enforcement agencies choose to use to help locate suspected individuals of downloading child pornography.
The AirCheck Wi-Fi tracking devices has assisted the law enforcement agencies, such as the City of Martinez Police Department in California, to help track down suspected criminals.
“Combating the growing threat of child pornography on the Internet is a nationwide priority,” says Sergeant Dave Mathers, head of the Electronic Crimes Unit for City of Martinez Police Department.
“AirCheck is a simple, elegant, and easy to use tool that aids in locating suspects on wireless networks. The tool easily verifies wireless network settings, providing us with more confidence that we’ve identified the suspect’s location. Using this information, we can eliminate more variables while focusing on the suspect downloading the illegal content."
Aircheck Wi-Fi Testers help assist law enforcement agencies with its easy-to-use handheld Wi-Fi tool design with simplified one button interface. The Aircheck Wi-Fi tracking devices allowed law enforcement agencies to:
- Drive by a suspected location and identify all the wireless networks in use
- Utilise the product’s directional antenna to determine if a wireless network inside a suspect’s location is secured or unsecured
- More confidently enter the suspect’s location, if they determine a wireless network is secured, knowing that illegal Internet content is being downloaded from within that residence
- Track the suspected client (laptop, smartphone, etc.) location if a wireless network is determined to be unsecured, since there is a chance a non-resident is piggy-backing onto the resident’s wireless network from a nearby location and downloading child pornography.
