FAQs


Please report this to the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3).  IC3 is a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C).

IC3's mission is to serve as a vehicle to receive, develop, and refer criminal complaints regarding the rapidly expanding arena of cyber crime. The IC3 gives the victims of cyber crime a convenient and easy-to-use reporting mechanism that alerts authorities of suspected criminal or civil violations. For law enforcement and regulatory agencies at the federal, state, local and international level, IC3 provides a central referral mechanism for complaints involving Internet related crimes.
IC3 accepts online Internet crime complaints from either the person who believes they were defrauded or from a third party to the complainant.

They can best process your complaint if they receive accurate and complete information from you. Therefore, they request that you provide the following information when filing a complaint:

  • Your name
  • Your mailing address
  • Your telephone number
  • The name, address, telephone number, and Web address, if available, of the individual or organization you believe defrauded you.
  • Specific details on how, why, and when you believe you were defrauded.
  • Any other relevant information you believe is necessary to support your complaint.

The IC3, upon reviewing the information you provide to them, will contact us if warranted and notify us of what action they wish us to take.

The web site address for IC3 is: http://www.ic3.gov/

Yes, we do have a police explorer program. Law enforcement exploring is a learning for life, career and leadership development program which gives youth insight into the skills and techniques needed to succeed in life and as a police officer. The program is supported by the Boy Scouts of America as well as the Suffolk County Police Department. This specialty youth career oriented program is endorsed by federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, the International Association of Chiefs of Police, and the National Sheriff's Association. More than 2,800 police and sheriff's departments have organized explorer posts specializing in law enforcement. While explorers do not perform as police officers, they can provide assistance in public service programs, such as crime prevention programs. The explorers have the benefit of seeing first hand what exactly the law enforcement profession entails and whether or not they would like to pursue this as their chosen profession. The Police Explorer Program is open to males and females from ages 14 to 20.
