Harris County District Attorney’s Office

Digital Forensics Investigations Unit

Welcome to the Digital Forensics Investigations Unit of the Harris County District Attorney’s Office. The DFI Unit was created to provide digital forensic services and support to the District Attorney’s Office and surrounding local law enforcement agencies. The examiners within the DFI unit hold numerous certifications in several disciplines including computer forensics, cellphone forensics as well as training and experience in several other fields. 


The DFI Unit is currently exceeding our maximum case capacity. As a result, we will not be accepting any new case submissions or requests from agencies outside of the District Attorney’s Office at this time. Existing forensic requests are being triaged and prioritized on a case by case basis. We are taking these steps in an effort to reduce our backlog and to provide more timely examination results for case submissions. 


Please email us at dfi@dao.hctx.net for status of previously submitted cases or any other questions. We are also available by phone, our main office number is (713) 274-5920.
