Welcome to the San Diego Regional Computer Forensics Laboratory (RCFL) web page. Our mission is to provide computer-related assistance to law enforcement agencies within San Diego and Imperial counties. Our facility has the distinction of being the first established FBI-sponsored RCFL in the country. Today, we are among the leaders, both nationally and internationally, in conducting research and development for tools and procedures for use in the computer forensic and law enforcement communities. We are also part of the growing RCFL network that is striving everyday to combat computer related crime by assisting law enforcement agencies in the areas we serve.

What is an RCFL?

An RCFL is a one-stop, full service forensics laboratory and training center devoted entirely to the examination of digital evidence in support of criminal and national security investigations. The FBI provides start-up and operational funding, training and equipment, while state, local and other federal law enforcement agencies assign personnel to staff the lab. The San Diego RCFL's services are available to law enforcement agencies in their service area of San Diego and Imperial Counties.
