Minnesota Financial Crimes Task Force Hearing

With the growing sophistication of criminals involved in financial and ID theft, the Minnesota Legislature created the multi-agency Minnesota Financial Crimes Task Force to investigate and prosecute these complicated crimes under the auspices of the Department of Public Safety. On Thursday, the Senate Judiciary Committee heard an overview of the duties and responsibilities of the task force, as well as successful cases that were prosecuted.  The Task Force is hoping that their budget will be increased from the current $300,000.
