The crime of identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in America. The Clinton Police Department recognizes that these types of crimes can have a devastating effect on a person's life. Education provides information to help prevent citizens from becoming victims. It is also important to know what to do when prevention fails because dealing with financial institutions, businesses, and the legal system can be confusing. The department has provided information from the North Carolina Identity Theft Protection Act and federal bank regulatory agencies to help you. Additional information may be obtained from the Federal Trade Commission. If you have questions about identity theft or find yourself a victim of this crime, contact the Clinton Police Department at (910) 592-3105.
