Special Investigations Bureau


Prosecutors assigned to the Special Investigations and Prosecutions (SIP) Bureau, with the assistance of seasoned investigators and retained forensic accountants principally devote their time to the investigation and prosecution of complicated and/or large scale financial crimes, such as embezzlements, investment frauds, business frauds, insurance frauds, employment/compensation frauds, welfare fraud, identity theft, tax evasion, and financial elder abuse. SIP cases are usually more time intensive and require a variety of technical skills and training not possessed by most prosecutors.
