Idaho will soon have more weapons to protect against investment fraud.
The Idaho Crime Prevention Association was selected to participate in a national program to teach law enforcement officers how to battle investment fraud.
The Idaho Crime Prevention Association is made up of police officers, crime prevention specialists, private security and other people engaged in crime prevention. They will receive training through the National Crime Prevention Council and the FINRA Investor Education Foundation. The Idaho Crime Prevention Association members will then hold workshops with the public to teach basics about spotting and reporting investment fraud.
Part of the funding will pay for the creation of interviews with fraud offenders that can be used for fraud training and prevention.
