Detectives assigned to investigate white collar financial crime are charged with the duties of coordinating and investigating selected acts of financial crimes such as:
- Unsworn Falsification
- Contractor Fraud
- Credit Card Fraud
- Large-scale thefts
Detectives assigned as a financial crime investigator often deal with complex cases that require many hours of document analysis in order to identify criminal violations. These investigations can take hundreds of man-hours and span several months or even years.
The Detective Unit of the Office of the District Attorney is a member of the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C), which allows Detectives to draw on the many services and resources the NW3C provides, such as up to date training, data and document analysis, intelligence data bases, computer and network expertise and many other helpful tools that the white collar crime investigator may need.
