Illicit Tobacco: Trafficking Patterns & Organized Crime

Back to List

The Illicit Tobacco: Trafficking Patterns & Organized Crime Training seminar(s) provide 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, the seminar(s) provide 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 seminar training is a tremendous success.  NW3C looks forward to continuing its support of efforts at all enforcement levels to tackle this serious crime.

Both the one-day and half-day seminars cover topics of interest such as:
  • Fundamentals of the Illicit Cigarette Trade
  • Identifying Suspected Contraband Cigarette Traffickers
  • Contraband Cigarette Identification
  • Contraband Cigarettes and Organized Crime
  • Establishing Probable Cause and Interviewing Suspected Cigarette Traffickers
  • Contraband Trafficking Patterns and Trends
  • Private Industry Support

There is no cost to attend this training seminar.
