Communications Investigation– Cellular Positioning
Operators of cellular services set up receiving antennae which make it possible to locate telephones.
At the Institute of Forensic Science, we carry out investigations concerning the communications of all cellular networks.
Communications investigations concerning cell phones make it possible to provide answers in the following cases:
» The antenna picking up on the phone
» The directions in which the cell phone moves
» The cell phone’s location at a certain time
» The elimination of a possible location assumed
The investigation of communications is a very effective tool in criminal investigations.
Nevertheless, one should know that, although the investigation of communications can provide evidence on the device, it cannot do so as far as the owner of the device is concerned.
