Model Curriculum And Trainer's Guide for Programs to Combat White-Collar Crime.
Karchmer, Clifford L.
This model curriculum is addressed to the training needs of personnel working in general white-collar crime assignments located in state and local police or prosecutors' offices. It is designed intentionally to orient personnel to the requirements of building a case as it moves along the enforcement process. Materials on trainer use and modification of the model curriculum appear first. They cover adaptation to meet specific needs, recruiting and orienting instructors, selecting participants, and obtaining instructional materials. The comprehensive curriculum is organized into 14 enforcement issues, including orientation (introduction, relationship of white-collar crime to other crime problems), investigative planning, detection (conducting searches for violations, intelligence collection and analysis, handling of complaints), detection and investigation (locating sources of documentary information, employing financial investigation tools), investigation (interviewing victims and witnesses, interviewing suspects, computer-related fraud, using the computer as an investigative aid), and post-investigation (presentation of completed investigation to prosecutor, use of civil and administrative remedies). For each issue this information is provided: instructional goal, rationale, training objectives, and resource materials. (YLB)
