CVRCFL (revised)

The Chippewa Valley Regional Computer Forensic Laboratory (CVRCFL) is a collaboration of officers from the Eau Claire Police Department, the Eau Claire County Sheriff’s Department and the Altoona Police Department. The CVRCFL aims to increase the effectiveness of local law enforcement agencies by identifying and prosecuting child sexual predators in the Chippewa Valley. This allows for more comprehensive and timely digital forensic analysis service to the local agencies. In addition, the laboratory helps locate and preserve computer, cell phone, and other digital evidence for prosecution of a wide range of crimes committed in the Chippewa Valley.

The Eau Claire Police Department has one full-time specially trained detective investigator assigned to the Chippewa Valley Regional Computer Forensics Lab.

Digital evidence is one of the fastest growing areas of evidence as related to criminal investigations. CVRCFL investigators work on a variety of cases including child pornography, child enticement, financial crimes, thefts and homicides. As technology expands in both power and mobility, the CVRCFL continues to prove to be a vital asset for the Eau Claire Police Department in keeping the community safe. 


Financial donations are accepted through the Eau Claire Community Foundation.
