LifeLock & FBI-LEEDA Provide Identity Theft Training for Arizona Law Enforcement
Tempe, Ariz. — Over the past eight years Arizona has jockeyed between 1st and 2nd place in the nation by the Federal Trade Commission for most identity theft complaints filed. Significant statewide efforts have been undertaken in recent years to improve consumer protections, including the strong support and passage of bipartisan legislation to help prevent identity theft, and to empower law enforcement in their efforts to punish those responsible. Multiple Arizona governors, attorneys general, state legislators, and local prosecutors have repeatedly demonstrated their commitment and desire to improving Arizona’s standing in the ongoing battle.
The FBI Law Enforcement Executive Development Association (LEEDA) and LifeLock will host an Identity Theft Summit for law enforcement officials on Tuesday, October 4. Hosted by Chief Frank Milstead and the Mesa Police Department, law enforcement officials representing federal, state and local agencies are invited to attend. The summit coincides with Governor Jan Brewer’s continuation of official gubernatorial proclamations to raise awareness of identity theft and the consequences it has on the citizens of Arizona.

"Arizona has a proven commitment to equipping law enforcement with the tools needed to win the battle against identity theft. United together in this fight, it is vital that we get to the heart of what makes us vulnerable to attacks," said LifeLock Chairman and CEO Todd Davis. "Statistics show that employment related fraud was one of the top identity theft complaints filed with the Federal Trade Commission over the past 8 years in Arizona. This has significantly contributed to the obstacles that threaten growth in Arizona’s economy. Business owners, citizens, and elected officials all must continue to address the urgency of these attacks on innocent people."
