White Collar Investigation Teams
The Division of Law Enforcement’s White Collar Investigation Team (WCIT) Program’s primary goal is to investigate white collar crimes, criminal activities such as major fraud, theft by false pretense, money laundering, corporate fraud, securities and commodities fraud, mortgage fraud, financial institution fraud, bank fraud and embezzlement, fraud against the government, mass marketing fraud, health care fraud, and more. The WCIT Program conducts investigations originating in California, but also in other states and regions that negatively impact Californians. The program is dedicated to using its skills to investigate white collar crimes primarily focusing on complex investigations, often with a nexus to criminal networks or organized crime. The WCIT Program works closely with the California Department of Justice, Office of Attorney General’s Fraud and Special Prosecutions Section, to target sophisticated, multi-layered, fraud cases that continue to harm California’s residents and the economy.
