Autopsy® in Law Enforcement

There is no criminal case today that does not involve some form of digital evidence. Autopsy’s free, open source platform offers a way to recover and manage evidence of cyber and physical crimes from computers, mobile devices, and other digital media without the need to incur high up-front licensing or annual maintenance costs.

While Autopsy as a standalone tool is robust enough to support all types of cases, add-on modules exist for specific requirements.


The Law Enforcement Bundle is for investigators of digital child exploitation cases.

The Video Triage module helps investigators of criminal cases involving video.


The Text Gisting module translates spoken or written text from languages an investigator doesn’t speak or read.

The Autopsy team is also available to provide custom module development.
