San Diego Economic Crime Committee

The San Diego Economic Crime Committee (SDECC) was established in 2019 with a mission to educate businesses about economic crimes, such as embezzlement, fraud and money laundering. When a business has been impacted by economic crime, it is necessary for the investigator and the San Diego District Attorney to understand what occurred. They rely on the facts and documents you provide and need as much detail as possible. This process can be daunting for business owners. The SDECC acts as your non-legal resource while you develop the necessary supporting documentation in order for the San Diego District Attorney’s office to prosecute.
