Financial Crimes

The Elk Grove Police Department Financial Crimes Unit is responsible for the investigation of criminal offenses involving forgeries, check cases, credit card offenses, fraudulent credit applications, bunco-fraud schemes, embezzlements, computer crimes, and elder fiduciary abuse cases.

Our detectives work in conjunction with the Sacramento Valley Hi-Tech Crimes TaskForce.

EGPD Financial Crimes Detectives and the Elk Grove Police Department Crime Prevention Unit suggests reading the following flyers to be better informed about hi-tech and internet crime:

If you feel you have been the victim of a financial crime, first contact your financial institution and put stop payment orders on checks, credit card accounts or other financial transactions that occurred if appropriate.  Secondly, make sure a crime has been committed.  Get copies of your credit report that show an account is not yours or a letter from a credit card statement showing fraudulent charges.  It is not enough to just get a phone call from a creditor; have them put it in writing. Then contact our Community Service Center.  Financial crimes / Identity theft reports must be completed in person at the Elk Grove Police Department Community Service Center located at 8400 Laguna Palms Way (916) 478-8100. Please call to find out what information will be required in order to make the report.

Your report will be forwarded to our Financial Crimes Detectives for further investigation, if appropriate.

Download the Financial Crimes Report (FCR) that will assist the report taker in gathering information required for the investigation. Please bring the completed FCR with you when you make your police report in person at the Elk Grove Police Department Community Service Center located at 8400 Laguna Palms Way. Information collected from the FCR will assist investigators and is confidential.
