White Collar Crime

The Johnson County District Attorney's Office received a federal grant allowing for the creation of a new White Collar Crime Unit. The goal of the unit is to be proactive in the area of white collar crime and to identify and prosecute white collar criminals by working with community-based organizations such as:

  • retirement centers
  • local AARP groups
  • banking institutions
  • local chambers of commerce
  • retail establishments
  • law enforcement agencies

The White Collar Crime Unit will investigate and prosecute cases such as:

  • employee embezzlement
  • identity theft
  • elder exploitation
  • insurance fraud
  • internet fraud
  • forgery rings
  • computer crime
  • pyramid schemes
  • organized groups who commit financial fraud on individuals or businesses
  • high dollar theft cases

Consumers, businesses or other organizations who believe they have been the victim of white collar fraud should call our White Collar Crime Hotline at (913) 715-3140. In addition, the White Collar Crime Unit is available to provide educational programs concerning the detection and prevention of white collar crime.
