With the proliferation of fraud and financial crime, local agencies can no longer rely solely on federal, or other specialized investigative agencies, to handle the problem.  State and local officers, and investigators, need to be able to recognize and address schemes such as identity theft, telemarketing fraud, and more, as well as understand the role that organized criminal organizations play.

In this one day class, officers will learn how to:

  • Recognize various types of fraud schemes
  • Determine the scope of the fraud scheme
  • Address legal and practical considerations during the investigation
  • Identify sources of information helpful to law enforcement
  • Recognize and collect evidence in a fraud or financial crime

The presentation includes an introduction to fraud and financial crime, legal and practical considerations, and a sample fraud investigation. The presentation highlights hot topic areas such as identity theft, telephone fraud schemes, and the role of organized criminal organizations including Nigerian Criminal Enterprises. Topics range from the "victimology" of elderly victims, to motives of individuals engaged in occupational frauds, to the use of financial surveillance in criminal investigations.


This presentation arms the participants with sources of information and proven effective investigative techniques.
