June 10-12, 2014
Money Laundering & Financial Crimes Conference

The Office of the Attorney General invites you to the Money Laundering & Financial Crimes Conference. This conference is designed to support the efforts of state and local law enforcement officials engaged in financial crime and money laundering investigations, particularly police officers, agents, analysts, forfeiture specialists and support personnel. The conference will be held on June 10-12, 2014, at the Holiday Inn Midtown in Austin, Texas.

Overview:

The enormous volume of transactions passing through financial institutions and related systems each day makes it a highly challenging task to follow the financial trail of the money launderer, especially within the context of cross-border transactions and alternative payment systems. Effective law enforcement requires a detailed knowledge of how these systems work as well as an awareness of the corresponding records that might be obtained during an investigation. In support of its efforts to assist other law enforcement investigators and analysts in gaining a better understanding and comprehension of these systems, this conference is facilitated by the Office of the Attorney General's Law Enforcement Division.

Location: Austin, Texas
Site: Holiday Inn Midtown
6000 Middle Fiskville Road, Austin, Texas 78752
(512) 451-5757
