Course detail: Financial Investigations

Course Description: 

This course will introduce law enforcement officers to methods of following a money trail from the proceeds of crime. The officers will learn how to expand an existing investigation to include financial crimes, and ultimately following a money trail to the disposition of those funds. Once the disposition is known, the officer will learn considerations for asset forfeiture based upon proceeds of crime versus facilitation.The concepts of financial crime can seem overwhelming, but this course will break the concepts into a case study, utilizing "just in time" learning techniques as the case progresses. Designed to be a hands on course, allowing for direction from the student, with instructor guidance, will allow officers to see how the information is useful in all investigations. 

The course will benefit officers conducting routine investigations, traffic stops with money seizures, and undercover operations where a financial aspect can be exploited. Learning the basics of following the money trail can expand current investigations, lead to parties benefitting from a crime, and enhance asset forfeiture possibilities. 

Core Competencies:
  • Participants will develop procedural knowledge of federal, state and local laws as they pertain to the actions of law enforcement officers and the enforcement of those laws.
