Annotation: Efforts to coordinate the white-collar crime containment activities of several agencies and to develop a national strategy are described with emphasis on the seminal role of the National District Attorneys Association (NDAA) symposium of July 1978.
Abstract: The groundwork for the NDAA Economic Crime Project symposium, which focused on containing white collar crime, was prepared with the participation of such agencies as the Criminal Division of the Department of Justice, the FBI, the House subcommittee on crime and the NDAA. At the symposium, efforts were made to go beyond conflicting interests of the agencies in order to coordinate containment efforts and to use the available resources more efficiently. Although the symposium did not develop a comprehensive strategy, it provided opportunity for representatives to meet, and as a result, many links between agencies were established. During the following year, significant steps were taken to further national strategy development, even though the priority was necessarily given to enforcement by individual agencies and departments. The principal step involved the activation of a specific component of the NDAA Economic Crime Project to deal with integration of containment activities in cooperation with such agencies as LEAA, the Batelle Law and Justice Study Center, the Department of Justice, and other Federal agencies. Subsequent interagency meetings established an Executive Working Group with bylaws that provided mechanisms for exploration of mutual problems, exchanges of information, and data collection. Footnotes are included.
