Program Description

  Major Fraud and Special Investigations

The Special Prosecutions Division program investigates allegations of complex financial crimes such as real estate and other business investment fraud schemes for which the Department of Police is unable to provide investigative resources. The program also investigates allegations of thefts involving attorneys stealing from clients, financial exploitation of elderly victims, and misconduct by public officials. When these investigations support criminal charges, the cases are charged, generally in the Circuit Court, and litigated to disposition by Senior Assistant State's Attorneys. A significant part of this program is attempting to obtain restitution for victims and businesses that have lost money in these complex cases. Program staff also provides guidance to police officers and investigators from other agencies in situations where financial crimes may be suspected.
