NICB and CDI to Meet Sept. 12 to Discuss Strengthening Partnership
SAN DIEGO, CA., SEPTEMBER 12, 2022 — The National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB), the insurance industry's association dedicated to predicting, preventing, and prosecuting insurance crime, is strengthening its longstanding relationship with the California Department of Insurance (CDI). California currently ranks third in the nation for vehicle thefts per 100,000 people, and CDI is committed to reducing crime through its enforcement actions targeting insurance fraud.
NICB President and CEO David Glawe will meet with CDI Assistant Chief Shawn Conner on Monday, Sept. 12 in San Diego to discuss their continued partnership and ways to combat insurance fraud and crime.
“CDI is a valued partner of NICB, and we have maintained a strong partnership with them for many, many years,” said Glawe. “We are eager to meet face-to-face with Assistant Chief Conner to discuss ways to strengthen our partnership and identify collaboration opportunities to help combat rising crime.”
As crime continues to increase across the U.S., including the highest vehicle theft numbers since 2008, staggering catalytic converter thefts, and fraud exceeding $300 billion nationwide each year, California is experiencing some of the highest crime rates, and therefore, is the perfect place to address these issues.
“CDI and NICB have worked together hand-in-hand since 1992,” said CDI Assistant Chief Shawn Conner. “We value the intelligence and support that NICB Special Agents offer us during an investigation.”
NICB and CDI are looking forward to continuing their valued partnership as they battle the ever-growing crime trends seen in California. Together, they will investigate all areas of insurance fraud including, auto fraud, staged accidents, health care fraud, workers’ compensation, and property investigations.
