ECPD plans and directs well-designed anti-fraud programs to detect, investigate, and conduct enforcement activities on behalf of residents and businesses. It investigates fraud and regulatory violations of the District’s insurance, securities and banking laws committed by licensed and unlicensed companies, agents, brokers, producers, public adjusters, representatives, investment advisers, and the general public, and refers cases for criminal prosecution and/or administrative enforcement proceedings. ECPD also provides mandated anti-fraud regulatory and compliance guidance, training, and data analysis to licensed financial service entities.
