The Insurance Fraud Unit is responsible for detecting, reducing and deterring insurance fraud through aggressive investigation and prosecution. The Unit works cooperatively with municipal and state law enforcement agencies, insurance companies and their investigation staff.
The types of insurance fraud in the county are very diverse, and occur in all areas of insurance. Insurance crimes also range in severity, from slightly exaggerated claims to criminals deliberately causing accidents or damage. Fraudulent activities affect the lives of innocent citizens, both directly through accidental or purposeful injury or damage, and indirectly as these crimes cause insurance premiums to rise.
