Missouri Digital Forensic Center

The Missouri Digital Forensic Center (MDFC) was created in late 2019 as a result of the ever-increasing amount of digital evidence being seized pursuant to criminal activities. The MDFC is responsible for performing forensic examination and analysis of digital evidence for law enforcement throughout the state. The Center is task force centric with the original members being the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the Missouri Department of Social Services, and the Army National Guard. The MDFC has full time examiners located in Jefferson City with a satellite office in Troop A, Lee’s Summit, and part time examiners located in Troops A, C, D, E, F, and G.
