NORWOOD, Mass. (AP) — Police work is increasingly requiring ever more sophisticated levels of technological and computer savvy to track down cybercriminals.

On Monday, Democratic Attorney General Maura Healey is kicking off the seventh Annual National Cyber Crime Conference. The meeting is aimed at helping law enforcement officials develop the skills needed to meet the threats of online crime, digital evidence and changes in technology.

The three-day conference is expected to draw more than 700 law enforcement officers, prosecutors and investigators from across the nation.

Organizers of the event say that to date, the conference has helped train attendees from 49 states as well as the US Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Canada, Ireland, England, and Trinidad and Tobago.

The conference will be held in Norwood.
