Despite a global pandemic, bad actors continue to find ways to exploit individuals, including vulnerable populations. Join speakers from the U.S. Department of Justice and the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office to discuss federal and local prosecutors’ efforts to address COVID-19-related crimes as government entities across the country respond to an unprecedented attack on the health and well-being of communities. The webinar will take a deeper dive into the Department of Justice’s efforts in detecting, investigating and prosecuting wrongdoing related to the coronavirus global pandemic, including through the U.S. Attorney General’s creation of the COVID-19 Hoarding and Price Gouging Task Force. Also, learn from a local prosecutor how they set up a hotline, messaged to the public, fielded, tracked, acted on and investigated over 250 complaints, while working to educate merchants and encourage compliance before enforcement.
