Marietta Police, KSU team up to fight cyber crime

MARIETTA, Ga. -- The Marietta Police Department has partnered with criminal justice graduate students at Kennesaw State University to fight crime in cyberspace.

The department recently received a criminal justice grant, which it used to form a two-year pilot position -- the Police Cyber Specialist (PCS). Abby Lucas, the first-ever KSU criminal justice student, has been named PCS and began work this week.

Marietta Police say the PCS will help the department tackle growing cyber issues, such as fraud, trafficking and misuse of social media.

"Crime in cyberspace is no worse in Marietta than anywhere else, but the Marietta Police Department, whose motto is 'Policing with a Vision,' intends to face it head-on in order to keep Marietta a safe and flourishing city," police spokesman David Baldwin said in a statement.
