Identifying the Impostor


Understanding Identity Theft and License Fraud along with altered fingerprint recognition.


COST: $125.00 per student


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 and license fraud has been shown to be a favorite tool for the drug trafficker and 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 our one-of-a-kind Document Search Warrant based on the probable cause you develop.

There is no other tool like this for law enforcement. Since 2014, over 3100 Officers, Detectives, Troopers, Dispatchers, Agents and Analysts from all over New England and many other States 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.”

You will be able to identify impostors who have acquired valid but fraudulently obtained drivers’ licenses and State IDs and who probably have already been arrested using the stolen identity. Some have even voted and gone undetected until now. We also discuss how to help the victim of identity theft and the use of the “Identity Theft File” in the NCIC 2000 Operation Manual. Your future Impostor may not be aware that his stolen identity has been entered into NCIC.

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