On February 11, 2019, the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB), in cooperation with the International Agri-Center, conducted a law enforcement heavy equipment identification training day at the 52nd Annual World AG Expo in Tulare, CA.
This annual training affords law enforcement professionals the opportunity to interact with representatives from the heavy equipment industry and inspect their equipment for identification serial numbers. This training helps law enforcement to identify stolen equipment and their related components.
This year's key note presenter was Mr. Bryan Thul of the John Deere Company, who addressed approximately 60 law enforcement officers from throughout California.
Representatives from Bobcat and Kubota were also on hand to interact with attendees. This year's training was hosted by NICB Special Agent Neil Carmody and assisted by Special Agents Lou Koven and Gabe Marquez.
