Underground Academy is UCAC's partnership arm that is designed to serve the community through the intersection of justice and technology. Underground Academy events involve partners in law enforcement, software, and/or community organizations working alongside UCAC personnel to help prevent and fight crime in our region, particularly through web-based open source intelligence work.
Underground Academy's Graphathon '23 was an opportunity to learn about human trafficking investigations and analytics in a practical setting. Participants were provided real-world leads to learn to search the internet and find connections that help law enforcement identify victims of human trafficking and their abusers. We had a GREAT mix of trafficking survivors, investigators, analysts, and researchers and a very successful 1st Annual Graphathon.
Stay tuned for info on next year's event soon!
