Identity Theft and Fraud Prevention Program

Identity theft and fraud crimes are relatively low-risk crimes that can have high payoffs for perpetrators. Advances in technology have made personal information more accessible than ever, leading criminals to profit from sophisticated schemes related to identity theft. Combining these factors with limited police resources, it is easy to understand why identity theft is the fastest-growing crime in America and the reason behind the creation of the Beaverton Police Department’s Identity Theft and Fraud Prevention program.
