On Friday Morning, Joann Kokorus Co-Chair of the Connecticut Chapter welcomed the group and introduced this year’s Keynote Speaker, Mr.
Chris Hansen of television journalism, best known for his award winning series “To Catch a Predator” and “Crime Watch”. Hansen spoke of his experiences producing crime based television and how information is developed into criminal cases that have led to multiple arrests during his time in the industry.
The members in attendance earned one ACAMS credit after learning about the importance of 314(b) information sharing, as well as a case study discussion of what happened to Wachovia Bank from our two presenters Ellyce Brower and Lauren Balestrieri of The University of New Haven.
Old colleagues and new “caught up” during the networking segment which again offered a free introduction to casino gambling using live (demonstration) gaming tables, food and drink.
Tom, a retired police lieutenant with over twenty two years of law enforcement experience, thanked the law enforcement officers present, active and retired, for their service.
The words of these victims was a sobering reminder that the people of our state are reliant upon the vigilance of all components of financial crimes enforcement efforts.
The CT Chapter would like to thank United States Attorney Daly and AUSA Mc Garry for their presentations and all those in attendance.
