Gang members have evolved over the past few years and evolved into a new realm of criminal activity.  Credit Card Fraud, Identity Theft, IRS Tax Fraud and state income tax fraud have become a game changer for Gang members all across the United States.  Gang members are now making over a billion dollars a year by conducting fraud crimes.

This training course is designed to show officers how to identify the various types of fraud and how to move forward successfully prosecuting these cases in federal and state courts.  The techniques used to arrest and prosecute these gang members are placing viloent gang members in prison at a higher rate than narcotics and gun cases.   

This training will show officers how to identify and follow the paper trail on subjects as well as how to set up covert operations which target gang members.  These specialized operations are crucial in targeting gang members and the proven track record of these operations will be presented in case studies.  Many officers are seeing an abundance of prepaid debit cards and gift cards being carried by gang members and they have no idea that most of these cards are the number one prequsite for fraud.
