Bossier City Police Department Sergeant and Bossier Financial Crimes Task Force member, Christopher Davis, was sworn in with the United States Secret Service as a new member of the Southwest Louisiana Financial Crimes Task Force. Davis says, “I am honored to have been selected by the Secret Service to represent the Bossier City Police Department and the local task force on the Southwest Louisiana Financial Crimes Task Force.”
The Southwest Louisiana Task Force is sponsored by the United States Secret Service and enjoys the participation of over 30 local and state agencies. The main goal of the task force is to share relevant operational intelligence and coordinate resources to combat emerging criminal trends and tactics in Louisiana. Participants are commissioned federally and able to investigate any type of crime that involves a financial or cyber nexus. The United States Secret Service is also able to offer local agencies state of the art computer forensic training through the National Cyber Forensic Institute in Hoover, Alabama.
“In the last few years, the Bossier Financial Crimes Task Force has been battling counterfeit money and checks, identity theft, skimmers, and crimes against financial institutions. While arrests have been made in many of those cases, this will broaden our scope in investigating the crimes,” says Davis. The Bossier Financial Crimes Task Force is comprised of officers of the Bossier City Police Department and deputies of the Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office. Sgt Davis has been with the Bossier City Police Department since 2001 serving in corrections, the patrol division, on the tactical negotiations team, and the criminal investigations division.
