Fraud investigators in Kiev receive fraud training from Economic Crime Academy

29 November 2018


Earlier this year, the Economic Crime Academy (ECA) delivered a series of fraud investigations courses to detectives at the National Anti-Bribery Unit (NABU) of Ukraine.

  • The ECA delivered training to 45 fraud investigators in Kiev
  • The courses were on money laundering and cryptocurrencies
  • Fraud training delivered in Kenya and more international courses planned for 2019

ECA trainers travelled to Kiev and ran several courses on money laundering and cryptocurrency investigations to 45 economic crime investigators.

A range of topics were covered in the course, including how overseas financial centres operate, how they can be used to hide assets and how trusts can be used in money laundering. The delegates were also given a better understanding of Bitcoin and how other cryptocurrencies work.

This is only one of a number of courses that the ECA has delivered internationally, and other countries include Kenya, Columbia, South Korea and Dubai. Earlier this year, the ECA also ran a new bribery investigation course for the FBI and police forces in Australia and Canada.

Looking ahead to 2019, the ECA are hoping to continue their delivery of courses internationally, with the Republic of Angola Police Force set to receive fraud training.

Mike Betts, Head of Skills & Development at the City of London Police’s Economic Crime Academy, said:

“The Economic Crime Academy continues to deliver training to police forces and law enforcement agencies across the globe, and we’re really pleased with the enthusiasm and the positive feedback we received from the investigators in these courses.

“We’re proud of the design and delivery of our courses, which is demonstrated by the uptake from police forces and law enforcement agencies on an international scale.”
