Annotation: THE COST-EFFECTIVENESS OF THE SECOND FULL YEAR OF OPERATION FOR THE ECONOMIC CRIME UNIT OF THE CONNECTICUT CHIEF STATE'S ATTORNEY'S OFFICE IS REPORTED.
Abstract: THE ECONOMIC CRIME UNIT IS CHARGED WITH PROTECTING THE PUBLIC FROM THE RISING INCIDENCE OF CONSUMER FRAUD AND WHITE-COLLAR CRIME. IT COMBINES THE INVESTIGATIVE PROSECUTORIAL FUNCTION INTO ONE ORGANIZATION, ENABLING THE INVESTIGATOR AND THE PROSECUTOR TO WORK TOGETHER IN COMPILING AND EVALUATING THE EVIDENCE REQUIRED TO PRESENT A CASE IN COURT. THE UNIT HAS DEMONSTRATED ITS ECONOMIC VIABILITY BY RETURNING MORE THAN THE TOTAL COST OF ITS OPERATION TO THE STATE OF CONNECTICUT. THE UNIT HAS BEEN WORKING HARD TO MAKE THE PUBLIC AWARE OF VARIOUS TYPES OF ECONOMIC CRIME SCHEMES. THE UNIT'S ACTIVITIES FOR THE YEAR ARE DETAILED, AND FIGURES FOR THE NUMBER OF CONTACTS, COMPLAINTS, ARRESTS, FINES, AND THE AMOUNT OF RESTITUTION ARE PROVIDED. (JSP)
