White Collar Crime

The Johnson County District Attorney's Office received a federal grant allowing for the creation of a new White Collar Crime Unit. The goal of the unit is to be proactive in the area of white-collar crime and to identify and prosecute white-collar criminals by working with community-based organizations such as:

  • Retirement centers
  • Local AARP groups
  • Banking institutions
  • Local chambers of commerce
  • Retail establishments
  • Law enforcement agencies

The White Collar Crime Unit will investigate and prosecute cases such as:

  • Employee embezzlement
  • Identity theft
  • Elder exploitation
  • Insurance fraud
  • Internet fraud
  • Forgery rings
  • Computer crime
  • Pyramid schemes
  • Organized groups who commit financial fraud on individuals or businesses
  • High dollar theft cases

In addition, the White Collar Crime Unit is available to provide educational programs concerning the detection and prevention of white-collar crime.
