Rebovich to Represent CIMIP in State, Local White Collar Crime Program
White Collar Crime Research Funded by U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics
Group to determine operational definition, recommend methods of data collection
Utica, NY (01/30/2013)- Executive Director Donald Rebovich will represent The Center for Identity Management and Information Protection (CIMIP) of Utica College as part of a National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C) and National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG) project to study white collar crime at the state and local enforcement levels.
The State and Local White Collar Crime Program (SLWCCP) is funded by the U. S. Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS). This is the first BJS effort to focus on white collar crime investigated and sanctioned by state and local governments. The immediate goals of the SLWCCP are to develop an operational definition of white collar crime, describe the activities of state attorneys general in the area of white collar crime, and to recommend future data collection activities that will provide nationally-representative case-level data on state and local governments' handling of white collar crime from criminal, civil and regulatory perspectives.
Dr. Rebovich will join a team of subject matter experts to establish a working definition of white collar crime which will help guide the data collection throughout the project period and, later, assist in the development of a national survey of state attorney general offices.
The first meeting will take place in Dallas on Feb. 20. A second meeting is planned shortly after in Saint Louis, MO. White collar crime experts from across the U.S. including members from academia, state and local law enforcement, as well as representatives from state attorney generals’ offices, will participate in this effort.
