Collaboration: The source of our success – Part 2 of 2

We’ve found that one of the most effective ways to discover alternate methods of fraud detection and investigation is to consult or partner with other criminal justice and law enforcement agencies. Such collaboration allows SID to examine its own methods to see where improvements can be made, how tasks can be accomplished more efficiently, and what new strategies or technologies can be used in the course of an investigation. Examples of our partnerships include:

  • Networking with professionals via active and productive memberships in dozens of anti-fraud associations, including: Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE), Central Ohio Investigative Network (COIN), National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators (NADDI), National Health Care Anti-Fraud Association (NHCAA), National Society of Professional Insurance Investigators (NSPII), National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C), Ohio High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (OHIDTA), and Ohio Investigators Association (OIA).
  • Participating in the anti-fraud conferences. This week, selected SID fraud analysts are attending the “2013 Targeting Fraud – Safeguarding Integrity” conference, hosted by Franklin University, National White Collar Crime Center, Ohio Ethics Commission and the Ohio Investigators Association.
  • Benchmarking with the experts from the workers’ compensation systems in dozens of other states. These esteemed benchmarking partners include the Florida Department of Financial Services, Division of Workers’ Compensation; and the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries. Moreover, since 1993, delegations from other workers’ compensation systems have benchmarked with BWC to learn our best practices. These include the states of Kentucky, New York, North Dakota and West Virginia.
  • Conducting operational training for law enforcement colleagues. For example, two of our SID special agents in charge have presented surveillance training at the Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy.
  • Receiving specialized operational training from law enforcement colleagues. Just last month, a Department of Public Safety expert from the Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP) was the keynote speaker at our annual in-service training session for all SID professionals.

It’s an honor to be associated with other criminal justice and law enforcement agencies and the many professionals who make up these organizations. We respect and appreciate their dedication to serving and protecting the citizens of Ohio.
