Study: Law Enforcement Lacks Resources to Combat Internet Fraud

Share this content:
Law enforcement agencies in the United States lack the resources and staff to adequately investigate Internet fraud, according to a study of 2,344 such agencies.

The study, "Internet Fraud: Law Enforcement Resources, Collaboration, Control, and Prevention," was conducted by Ronald G. Burns, assistant professor of criminal justice at Texas Christian University. It was sponsored by NW3C, a resource of economic and cyber crime information for law enforcement member agencies, and public and private entities.

Other results from the nationwide study:

· Agencies want legislation that more clearly defines Internet fraud and clarifies enforcement boundaries.

· Jurisdictional issues hamper their efforts.

· Agencies are generally unaware of available resources.
