Police Letter of Recommendation
Around the year 2000 I was engaged by the New Zealand Police to give expert evidence in one of New Zealand's first criminal prosecutions for computer hacking. This is a scan of a letter I received from the police detective in charge of that case thanking me for my work on the case, which resulted in the accused being convicted. During the course of the trial I delivered the first live demonstration of computer hacking techniques seen in a New Zealand courtroom to help the jury understand what hacking was.
