Associated Press: Biden wins White House

Joe Biden

From The Associated Press

Saturday, Nov. 7, 2020

WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrat Joe Biden defeated President Donald Trump to become the 46th president of the United States on Saturday, positioning himself to lead a nation gripped by historic pandemic and a confluence of economic and social turmoil.

His victory came after more than three days of uncertainty as election officials sorted through a surge of mail-in votes that delayed the processing of some ballots. Biden crossed 270 Electoral College votes with a win in Pennsylvania.

Biden, 77, staked his candidacy less on any distinctive political ideology than on galvanizing a broad coalition of voters around the notion that Trump posed an existential threat to American democracy. The strategy proved effective, resulting in pivotal victories in Michigan and Wisconsin as well as Pennsylvania, onetime Democratic bastions that had flipped to Trump in 2016. 

Biden was on track to win the national popular vote by more than 4 million, a margin that could grow as ballots continue to be counted.

Sgt. Bryan Tyitye, a veteran with the Huron Township Police Department, graduated from the National Computer Forensics Institute (NCFI) Computer Evidence Recovery training sponsored by the United States Secret Service.

Police Chief Everette Robbins said that Tyitye completed 192 hours of training in Hoover, Alabama from Aug. 3 through Sept. 4.

The training was federally funded and there was no cost to Huron Township, which includes the equipment used for these investigations.

“I am very appreciative and proud of Sgt. Tyitye for this accomplishment. I am appreciative that he would spend a month away from his family to bring this new expertise and resource to our residents. I am very proud of the professional way that he represented our department throughout this process,” said Robbins.

“This opens many doors for our department as it relates to computer crimes. A large number of crimes are committed through ever changing technology. We now have the ability to immediately investigate computer crimes such as child pornography; this is a huge step for our department.”

From the NCFI website:

“Today’s high-tech environment presents new challenges to law enforcement and the justice system as cyber criminals exploit computers, mobile devices and the Internet to threaten our banking, financial and critical infrastructures. Digital technology is used to commit any and every type of crime. Therefore, it is imperative to address the changes in technology by providing training on cyber-investigative techniques and by sharing current expertise.

The National Computer Forensics Institute’s (NCFI) innovative facility and strategic partnership serve to substantially enhance law enforcement efforts to suppress the continually evolving and increasing number of electronic crime cases affecting communities nationwide, as well as improve and strengthen the prosecution and adjudication of those cases.

NCFI training courses are offered to state and local law enforcement, prosecutors and judges through funding from the federal government. Travel, lodging, equipment (in some classes), and course fees are provided at no costs to attendees or their agencies.”

“We appreciate the opportunity provided to us by the United States Secret Service. We continue to be committed to using all of the resources available to us to provide our residents with the quality service they deserve,” Robbins said.
