Grimes County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Todd Greene and Sheriff Don Sowell accept a check for $5,000 from Grimes County Crime Stoppers president Bob Goldstein to assist with funding of software from [Cell]Hawk Analytics. The software plots the location of a cellphone and once the data is obtained from the cellphone subscriber, it allows law enforcement the ability to place the suspect in the vicinity of the crime and/or suspect in the vicinity of the victim, depending on the crime. Previously, it took weeks or months to obtain the data from cellphone providers.

Tuolumne County, CA – March 26, 2020 started out as a beautiful day in Tuolumne County California, filled with blue skies and an unusual tranquility due to the COVID-19 global pandemic.  Throughout the state residents struggled to find activities to occupy their time as California issued a “stay-at-home” order.  A day hike in the Red Hills Recreational Area at the foothills of the Stanislaus National Forest seemed to be a good idea for getting out while practicing social distancing, but the trip had unintended consequences for one female hiker.

After hiking for almost 6 hours, while trying to return to the trailhead, a woman suddenly found herself lost.  She followed several paths that looked familiar but she ended up going in circles, ultimately ending up even more lost.  As night was falling, and her cell phone battery was dying, she placed a call to a family member to report she was lost in the Red Hills area.  Soon after that, her phone went dead.

Family members called the Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Office (TCSO) who started “pinging” her cell phone.  They dispatched patrol deputies and a California Highway Patrol airship to the area.  TCSO Search & Rescue (SAR) was activated to assist in the search.  It was now dark and the pings were not providing much information, due to the fact that her cell phone was dead.   The phones last location reported showed she was about three miles outside of the Red Hills Recreational Area.

Due to weather conditions, the terrain, and the lack of daylight, the Incident Commander on scene made the decision to suspend operations and wait for first light to resume the ground and air search.  In the meantime, a high-tech investigator from TCSO was asked to assist with reviewing the Call Detail Records (CDRs) related to the woman’s cell phone.  Verizon Wireless provided the CDRs along with specialized location records.

That night and into the early morning hours of March 27th, the investigator examined the records.  At 1:50am PST, he reached out to the Hawk Analytics Emergency Response Team, a 24/7 exigent support team specializing in examining and mapping cell phone records.  Within minutes of reviewing the records, several areas of interest (GPS coordinates) were identified by the Hawk Analytics team as good areas in which to focus search efforts, assuming the hiker would stay put during the night and not change her location or try to hike out of the area.

Search Areas Identified By Hawk Analytics

Since Hawk Analytics inception in 2013, any law enforcement agency handling an emergency that involves cell phone data analysis or mapping is welcome to use CellHawk for free. CellHawk is a secure, web-based software that combines cellular engineering experience with a clear understanding of investigators’ needs that is used by hundreds of law enforcement agencies across the country.

At first light, the TCSO Incident Commander dispatched several TCSO SAR teams to those geo-locations and the first SAR team found the hiker alive.

 

“This [rescue] could not have happened without your assistance.  The … family and our office are truly grateful for Hawk Analytics, the wonderful team you guys have and all the assistance you provide!  THANK YOU!”

 -Detective Lee, Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Office

 

This incident is a great example of how cell phone records can assist in finding missing persons and the help that Hawk Analytics can provide to first responders.  This was a remarkable outcome and one that the hiker will remember for some time.

D-D- “DAS” All Folks

A Distributed Antenna System (DAS) is a cell site and sector configuration that cellular companies use to separate antennas from a main (macro) cell site location and relocate those antennas to provide better signal coverage into an area or to add additional network capacity.

What is Your Why?

I think in today’s day and age and with everything that has been going on with the rioting, our political climate, the pandemic, etc., it is good to take some time to remember why we do what we do. It is beneficial for the soul to reflect on why you decided to go down the path you chose. Like most of you reading this, I chose the path of law enforcement. From an early age, I loved the idea of chasing bad guys in a police car with lights and sirens! I mean who wouldn’t – am I right? But I soon figured out the real “why” for my ambition after joining the law enforcement community.

A simple guide to understanding cell site terminology when mapping cellular call detail records

If you’re new to working with cellular call detail records, you may soon realize that there is no shortage of acronyms in this field and may find it difficult keep all the terms straight. Analyzing call detail records is a skill that takes time to refine and fully understand. One thing I particularly struggled with when I first started analyzing CDRs was knowing the difference between 3G and 4G terminology, how the carriers label their cell sites and more importantly, how to interpret what I was looking at in CellHawk. Here is a simplified explanation of what I learned along the way…
