Welcome to NW3C's Members Web Site!
Started in 1980, NW3C is funded by an annual congressional appropriation through the Bureau of Justice Assistance. NW3C is a non-profit membership affiliated organization comprised of state and local law enforcement, prosecutorial, and regulatory agencies. We provide a nationwide support system to state and local law enforcement for the prevention, investigation, and prosecution of economic and high-tech crime. NW3C membership expands across all 50 states, the U.S. Territories, and foreign countries.
By joining NW3C, efforts to combat economic and high-tech crime become fortified on a national level. NW3C is a one-stop resource offering unparalleled benefits and information. From the moment an agency joins, it becomes part of an important network of information and opportunities.
Depending on the type of membership eligibility, NW3C offers programs and support in the following categories:
- Access to state-of-the-art training courses on financial and cyber crime investigation techniques;
- Analytical services and expertise to assist investigators with complex financial crime cases;
- Informational support through public records database searches from companies like LexisNexis, ChoicePoint, and ISO Claimsearch;
- Limited case funding for designated multi-state economic crime investigations;
- Search, analyze, and compile information on any of the complaints stored in the Internet Crime Center (IC3) database;
- An understanding of high-tech and economic crime trends using the resources and empirical data gleaned from NW3C research; and
