TOKYO, March 31, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — FRONTEO, Inc.

In this training program, FRONTEO supported the advancement of investigation technology and techniques employed by the Kanagawa Prefectural Police and the Saitama Prefectural Police Department in cyber-crime cases by providing various curricula on the use of AI among other advanced technologies in data analysis.

In order to further improve the officers’ techniques and readiness, a similar training program will be provided starting April 2017 to officers in the Kanagawa Prefectural Police Department (for the third consecutive year) and in the Saitama Prefectural Police Department (for the second consecutive year).

On March 28, 2017, following the completion of the 2016 training program, FRONTEO held a commemorative ceremony for members of the cyber-crime investigation teams who finished the program from both Prefectural Police Departments and awarded them with certificates that designated them as FRONTEO Certified Examiners.
