week we try to include training announcements from academies or
training organizations. This week we want to
announce that Crater Criminal Justice Academy,
located near Petersburg, VA, is hosting a class entitled, Following the
Money, December 4 - 6, 2006.
These classes are being presented by the Washington/Baltimore
HIDTA (High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area) group. This group is a
Multi-jurisdictional Counter drug Task Force covering Washington,
Baltimore and parts of Virginia.
This course will provide students with the
techniques for the financial aspects of drug-related investigations.
This interactive course involves specific case scenarios that will
allow the student to conduct financial interviews, identify sources of
financial information, utilize indirect methods of proving
profitability in illegal enterprises, carry out financial undercover
operations, and execute financial search warrants.
The class is free so the price is also right. For

This week for our PC user tip, I want to talk about your wireless
connection. War driving for open wireless signals is kind of fun but it
can also be dangerous. Windows has a feature called Wireless Zero
Configuration. It helps you connect to open wireless signals including
unknown and untrusted networks. So, unless you are really adventurous,
you may want to consider preventing your laptop from connecting to
unknown networks automatically. Here’s how to do it.
- Click Start>>Control Panel.
- Double-click Network Connections and right-click your
- Select Properties.
- Open the Wireless Networks tab and click Advanced.
- Deselect "Automatically connect to non-preferred networks."
- Click OK>>OK
This week for our Mac user tip, I want to tell you about a great
website. If you are a new Mac user, you need to visit the Atomic Learning website.
They have put together a fantastic collection of videos for new Mac OS
X users. The tutorials explain the ins and outs of using Dashboard,
Widgets, Searching, Spotlight and a whole lot more. But of equal
importance, they are in our favorite price range - FREE!
