March 20, 2012 WFO CAAA Event: Public Corruption

What do Rod Blagojevich, Jack Abramoff and Jack Johnson have in common? 

All were involved in public corruption.

Currently, the FBI—with our partners—is working more than 2,000 corruption investigations involving public officials around the country. These investigative efforts certainly pay off—during fiscal year 2010, our cases led to more than 1,330 informations/indictments and over 900 convictions (primarily at the federal level but also some at the local level). Our ability to use sophisticated investigative tools and methods—like undercover operations—is one of the reasons why the FBI is in a unique position to investigate allegations of corruption. Public corruption involves bribery, extortion, embezzlement, racketeering, kickbacks, money laundering, and all sorts of fraud.

Come learn about the FBI’s various cases and the techniques used to indict the corrupt in order to bring them to justice.”
