Cell Site Analysis
Cell Site Analysis allows for the identification of the location of a mobile phone when a call or text message is made or received. This evidence can be used within legal cases where the location of an individual is required.
Every time a mobile phone is used, the event is recorded. Using data from the mobile phone provider, Athena-Forensics' specialists are able to map this data to identify its location and determine the areas in which a phone has been used. This can be used to identify the whereabouts of a phone at a given time or to trace its movements over a period.
Cell Site Analysis is commonly used by law enforcement agencies to confirm that a suspect was indeed in an area during the time in which a crime was committed. Increasingly this evidence is used for proving or disproving alibis, demonstrating 'associations' or 'conspiracies', confirming a victim's movements and geographically 'placing' suspects at the scene of a crime.
The information provided can be used for evidential purposes and can be presented in court by our Cell Site Analysis Expert Witnesses.
