According to the *FBI’s Crime in the Nation statistics report, released in October 2022, violent crime remained consistent between 2020 and 2021, with a 4.3% uptick in the murder rate. That’s an improvement over 2020 when the murder rate in the U.S. jumped 29%. Technology is constantly evolving, and mobile devices are increasingly becoming the primary source of evidence in homicide cases.

From The News Desk is a compilation of stories from users on how Grayshift technology has helped them solve crimes in their jurisdictions.
