The Metropolitan Police Department is committed to providing the best customer service possible. The Financial and Cyber Crimes Unit has established a list of guidelines for reporting identity theft and fraud crimes, which are investigated by the unit. Being prepared for this meeting helps reducing the stress and confusion that may arise after the theft.
