Focus on Law Enforcement: Improving Collaboration Between Law Enforcement and Financial Institutions

  • When: Previously recorded on: August 20, 2014
  • Time: 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM ET
  • Level: All

During financial crime investigations, law enforcement and financial institutions have different processes and protocols, but share a common goal: identifying and preventing money laundering activities. Lack of collaboration between both parties can stall a criminal investigation, resulting in unfavorable media attention and delays in apprehending criminals. Common areas of disconnect range from SAR/STR filing and identifying the key points of contact, to protocols for subpoena summonses and financial information orders.

In this dynamic session, financial institutions will learn from law enforcement experts about the latest emerging typologies and regional shifts in money laundering, and newly vulnerable industries. In turn, law enforcement professionals will also learn about the benefits of consistent notifications of SARs/STRs from financial institutions. Join this meeting of the minds and ask your toughest questions as expert speakers address the challenges and opportunities posed by collaborating on financial crime investigations.
