Illicit Tobacco: Trafficking Patterns & Organized Crime

Back to Course List

The Illicit Tobacco: Trafficking Patterns & Organized Crime Training Conference provides attendees with a variety of perspectives on tobacco trafficking and how law enforcement, policy makers and private industry have confronted the problem.  NW3C has offered contraband tobacco training since 2008.

Overall, this conference provides a unique opportunity for law enforcement to hear local, state and federal perspectives on tobacco contraband enforcement efforts.  The feedback we have received  from attendees of past events has demonstrated that this conference training is a tremendous success.  NW3C looks forward to continuing its support of efforts at all enforcement levels to tackle this serious crime.

This one-day conference will cover topics of interest such as:
  • Fundamentals of the illicit cigarette trade
  • Contraband cigarettes and organized crime
  • Establishing probable cause and interviewing suspected cigarette traffickers
  • Prosecution strategies
  • Enforcement agency jurisdiction and legal authorities
  • Current enforcement and interdiction efforts
  • Trafficking patterns and trends
  • Private industry support  

There is no cost to attend this training conference.
