Financial Crimes

Financial Crimes

The Financial Crimes Division generally investigates financial related crimes. 

Modern technology has significantly affected the types of property crimes typically reported. Identity theft, for example, is a high tech crime to which specially trained investigators are assigned.

Just about anything that involves the illegal transfer of money or negotiable documents by way of a check, credit card, debit card, or any other type of access device.  (This usually does not include the outright theft of cash money.  That is treated as a property crime.)

Some of the common names of these types of crimes are forgery, access device fraud (commonly referred to as credit card fraud), unauthorized use of an access card as theft and Identity theft.  The Financial Crimes Section also investigates cases of identity theft.

In most cases, investigators only investigate felonies.
