Paraben has always been a proud supporter of law enforcement all over the world. Now with a special grant that has been created the support for departments has just gotten better.  Law enforcement has a growing need to be able to process devices and computers quickly as the data they contain can be useful in all types of investigations. Many departments have to wait in line with their evidence to have it processed which can create delays with their cases. The ability to quickly and effectively process digital evidence despite the side of your department is a critical need that cannot be filled without changes in the budget. Paraben’s new PUPS grant or Paraben Unified Police Support grant will grant the needed technology and training to departments that are missing the digital forensic capabilities locally. The PUPS grant is based on a donation received by Paraben to help departments in their pursuit of justice.

“Paraben’s E3 Forensic Platform is the perfect fit for smaller departments with the unified interface to process through all types of digital data the learning curve is small and each department can quickly start collecting their digital evidence from smartphones, computers, and more.” 

         -Stated Amber Schroader Founder & CEO

The PUPS grant is available to agencies/departments that are looking to add digital forensic capabilities. The grant will cover the 1-year license cost of the E3:Universal Software as well as an online training passport to the DSMO, P2CO, E3 Fundamental Fast Track, and Mobile Fast Track with their associated certifications. Any other training for grant winners is offered at 50% of the retail cost.

The goal of this grant is to allow for more digital criminals to be stopped and justice to be served. The application process can be located at:

All applications are reviewed and awards are given within 30-days of the application. Applicants go through basic due diligence to verify their award ability for the PUPS grant.
