Detail Information

This program is a Universal Law Enforcement Identity Theft recognition program that will assist you in identifying the presence of an Impostor. This one-day course will teach participants a new and dynamic method of identifying identity thief’s aka Impostors using multiple State and Federal databases.  The instructor will focus on foreign national impostors using stolen identities to hide in plain sight while committing various offenses in the New England area with a focus on narcotics trafficking.  This program teaches a comprehensive study of NCIC Triple I, aka “QH” and “QR,” and how to understand the search results along with information provided from the RMV, BOP, AFISR and “DQs” from Puerto Rico. You will also be taught how to recognize altered fingerprints. Massachusetts has been recognized by the FBI as being number one in the country for the most known cases of altered prints and this program identified the issue starting in 2012.

Identity theft has become a major problem in the U.S. with millions of victims including the taxpayer. After completing this course, you will be able to apply the technique immediately to identify impostors who are committing several felonies during a traffic stop or during an investigation.  You will be taught how to identify and process probable cause, enabling you to make an arrest on the spot or to apply for an arrest or search warrant based on the probable cause you develop.

There is no other tool like this for law enforcement.  Since 2014, over 3000 Officers, Detectives, Troopers, Dispatchers, Agents and Analysts from all over New England, New York and Arizona have attended and many are producing arrest and search warrant applications like never before. The fatal error for the Impostor is to have an interaction with an Officer trained in “Identifying the Impostor.”

This course is listed in Massachusetts on the State 911 Department approved courses.
