The newest addition to the state law enforcement agency is housed in the Georgia Cyber Center’s Hull-McKnight Building and grew out of an increasing need to hunt down child exploitation and cybercriminals in the state.

Nearly two dozen cell phones, each one evidence in some sort of crime, rest inside clear plastic sleeves on a wall in the Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s forensic lab at the Georgia Cyber Center.

Each phone is destined for the same place: the workstation of GBI Special Agent Wendell Goodman, who will use every tool at his disposal to break into the phone and reveal its contents.
