California Law Enforcement Invited to Free Identity Theft Training in San Francisco and Galt Presented by FBI-LEEDA and LifeLock
Tempe, Ariz. — Celebrities and politics aren’t the only things making headlines in the picturesque state of California; identity thieves are targeting Californian’s at an alarming rate. Beating out Texas and Arizona, California is ranked No. 3 in the nation for identity theft complaints in 2011 according to the Federal Trade Commission.
LifeLock, Inc., an industry leader in proactive identity theft protection, and the FBI Law Enforcement Executive Development Association (FBI-LEEDA) will provide free identity theft summits in San Francisco and Galt, CA on June 25 and 26 respectively. The trainings will help provide local, regional, state and federal law enforcement officials with the tools and techniques needed to help combat the growing crime. The award-winning educational summits will be hosted by the United States Marshals Service-Northern District of California in San Francisco and Chief William V. Bowen of the Galt Police Department.
“We have had such a tremendous response to our identity theft trainings that we are pleased to be returning to San Francisco for the second training in three months,” said Todd Davis, LifeLock Chairman and CEO. “By providing law enforcement on the front lines with a behind-the-scenes look at how criminals are perpetrating this crime, they often leave with a renewed perspective and a more complete understanding of how to work a complex identity theft case.”
The summits will mark the sixth and seventh time the valuable training has been presented in California since 2009; previous events were hosted in Los Angeles, Belmont, Dublin and San Diego. Attendees will be presented with in-depth instruction on the technological resources available to assist in identity theft investigations, as well as hands-on learning with tools used by today’s identity thieves, including the use and demonstration of different dangerous technologies and tampering devices.
