Guam - The U.S. Attorney's Office is hosting a Bankers and Law Enforcement Conference this week to educate the community on just how to identify and report financial crimes. U.S. Attorney for Guam and the CNMI Alicia Limtiaco says there were more than 200 participants during today's event.
She says the effort involves financial institutions, the IRS, ATF, along with other law enforcement officials.
Limtiaco also anticipates that the conference will prepare the community on how to identify procurement and construction fraud, especially with the military buildup. She added, "Whenever there is a significant population increase just as we are expecting with the buildup as well as the millions of dollars that are coming in to our community, where the money is we have to be concerned about criminal activity that may occur."
The conference continues tomorrow at the Hilton Resort on Tumon Bay.
