In this module’s assignment on criminal investigations, you should address all three of those issues.
For one of the four law enforcement agencies referred to in Law Enforcement Agencies, select a specific criminal offense within that agency’s investigative authority and expertise and discuss how several types of BSA-required information can be used in investigations of that offense. You may use specific examples or address more general uses of that information.
For example, Form 8300 report that a suspected drug dealer had purchased a luxury car and/or expensive jewelry using large amounts of cash provides police with information about a possible source of that individual’s income and suggests that he conducts much of his business in cash. That information is useful to the police on many different levels.
