, an industry leader in proactive identity theft
protection, and the FBI-Law Enforcement Executive Development
Association ( FBI-LEEDA
)
today announced a milestone in identity theft training for law
enforcement: training has now been completed in every state, as marked
by an interactive educational summit last week in Cheyenne, Wyoming, the
fiftieth state.

Approximately 16.6 million persons or 7% of all U.S. residents age 16 or
older, were victims of one or more incidents of identity theft in 2012.1
The partnership with FBI-LEEDA allows LifeLock to teach law enforcement
agents how to identify and respond to this crime through a series of
free training sessions.

The program covers a range of identity theft topics, including relevant
laws, identity theft through sophisticated technology, identity theft
awareness and protection strategies, databases to assist in
investigations and investigative strategies. The program’s instructors
are sworn law enforcement officials in the field of identity theft
detection and recognized nationally for their expertise. Fraud
investigators from various financial institutions also participate in
the program, sharing information, techniques and building alliances
between the public and private sectors.

“Training law enforcement about identity theft in all 50 states
demonstrates just how relevant identity theft is for law enforcement all
over the country,” said Charles “Skip” Robb, Executive Director for
FBI-LEEDA. “Education is core to law enforcement’s ability to combat
this ever-evolving and growing crime.”

Since October 2008, the series has reached most major metropolitan
cities across the country, including New York, Dallas, Miami, Boston,
Denver, Atlanta, Chicago, Philadelphia, Detroit, and San Francisco. To
date, the course has reached more than 10,000 law enforcement officials
representing more than 3,500 agencies. Summits are open only to law
enforcement, including chiefs, sheriffs, investigative supervisors,
fraud unit investigators, patrol officers, community policing personnel,
special agents, and elected officials.

“Our partnership with FBI-LEEDA allows us to address identity crime from
one more angle,” said Todd Davis, Chairman and CEO of LifeLock. “We saw
an opportunity to apply our knowledge of this cutting-edge crime by
joining forces to provide education, and we’re proud to have reached
this milestone of training in every state in the country.”
