The Numismatic Crime Information Center (NCIC) will be conducting an eight-hour seminar on “Numismatic Crime Investigations” at the ANA National Money Show March 8, 2018 in Irving, Texas. The class is being hosted by the American Numismatic Association (ANA) and sponsors include Stack’s Bowers, the Texas Numismatic Association (TNA) and the Pantego Police Department.
“The seminar is designed to provide attendees with the fundamental investigative techniques, knowledge and understanding to respond effectively to the complex challenges encountered during the investigation of a numismatic crime,” said Doug Davis, Founder/President of NCIC.
To enhance what they will be taught in the classroom, attendees will walk the bourse floor on Thursday and see the many facets of the numismatic industry in action.
“The opportunity to see millions of dollars in numismatic material and to be able to ask questions to dealers on the bourse floor is a valuable learning experience,” said Davis.
Topics discussed during the seminar will include robberies, murder, theft, organized crime groups, investment fraud, eBay fraud, FedEx/USPS thefts and counterfeits.
NCIC has partnered with PCGS, NGC, PMG, PCGS Currency and ANACS during this educational event. Due to their support and participation each attendee will receive samples of slabbed coins and currency to take back to their respective agencies and use as a learning tool for other investigators.
“In addition, NCIC has worked closely with the North Texas Regional Police Academy in order to provide investigators with eight hours of training that is accredited by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement,” said Davis, who is also a licensed police instructor in the State of Texas.
NCIC through its educational initiatives seeks to promote partnerships between law enforcement and the numismatic community, pursuing collaborative strategies in numismatic crime investigations.
The seminar is free to all law enforcement attendees. Persons who wish to help sponsor the seminar can contact [email protected]. NCIC is a 501(c)(3) non profit corporation and all donations and sponsorships are tax deductible.
