The Economic Crimes Unit/Task Force is comprised of an investigative Sergeant, eight full-time investigators, computer forensics specialist, Crime Analyst and Investigative Support Specialist. Three of the investigators are from our partnership with Titusville Police Department, Melbourne Police Department and the Palm Bay Police Department. The unit is dedicated to a team approach of combatting financial crimes which creates effective communication and collaboration. This collaboration greatly enhances law enforcements ability to protect and aggressively pursue those who victimize our residents. In addition, we have partnered with our Federal counterparts to effectively pursue all violators with no jurisdictional concerns.
The Economic Crime Unit is responsible for investigating identity theft, exploitation of elderly, schemes to defraud, public assistance fraud, money laundering, and/or any substantial fraudulent type crimes where the victims suffers a loss.
The unit has also partnered with our victim advocacy to help those in need specifically our elderly to assist them through the process when they are victimized.
The last component of the team approach is our partnership with the State Attorney’s office. This partnership allows the successful prosecution of sometimes difficult investigations that require expertise of all involved. The State Attorney’s Office is able to offer their expertise from the prosecution side which can be invaluable to the successful conclusion of these investigations.
