Rotary Club of Kirksville-Thousand Hills
31 October 2019
PROGRAM: KPD Regional Computer Crimes Unit; 
Detective Steve Feeney
Steve Feeney is a detective with the Kirksville Police Department and part of his duties are to investigate computer crimes against children.  The Kirksville Regional Computer Crimes Unit covers 13 counties in northeast Missouri. It is a grant funded unit that has been funded in this area for the last seven years.  In addition to investigating crimes Detective Feeney is also for educating students in the region on cyberbullying and internet safety. Steve said the victims of the crimes his unit investigates are in this area but that does not always mean that the perpetrators are.  Since these crimes are online the criminals could be located anywhere in the country.  Due to this he frequently travels to other parts of the nation, and is regularly in contact with the other 60 task forces like the one in Kirksville to coordinate investigations. The cased load of the KPD computer crimes unit is roughly 60 per year. Steve said that it is not a 9-5 job and he has to keep pretty irregular hours to identify criminals in this environment. The work is taxing emotionally, as he often sees people committing horrbile crimes against young kids, but he said it is rewarding when the work pays off and one of these criminals is taken off the streets and brought to justice.
