Financial Crimes Unit

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Investigations Division has a Financial Crimes Unit that handles financial crimes and fraud. This unit consists of a supervisor and four investigators who handle all crimes involvingĀ bad checks, credit cards, embezzlements, consumer frauds and other financial transaction crimes occurring within the county. This growing crime trend keeps investigators busy combating traveling crime families and financial crime rings. Investigators maximize clearance rates by sharing information with other Metro area agencies and developing task forces to help with the high rate of these often multi-jurisdictional crimes.

With inexpensive technology making it easy to transfer funds, create counterfeit checks and use the anonymity of the Internet, computer crimes are occurring at an increasingly fast rate. Additionally, crimes against children have been made easier through the use of the computers, allowing predators to secretly contact juveniles over the Internet.

Keeping up with the training and technological equipment needed to successfully investigate these types of crimes put the Financial Crimes Unit in the spotlight to provide up to date investigative expertise in these areas.

To contact the Financial Crimes Unit call 303-660-7548.
