Message from the Unit Commander
Financial Crimes, formerly known as the Fraud Squad, has not only changed its label but its focus.
This unit, stemming from the oldest investigative squad in the Toronto Police Service, is comprised of a group of dedicated investigators.
The members of this unit, both civilian and officers, boast a very diverse policing background. Their experience affords them a required skill, and expertise in dealing with these types of crime and offenders.
Every victim of a financial crime is treated with dignity, and professionalism. All investigations are conducted with pride and diligence.
I invite you to read further and learn about what we do, how we do it, and how to protect yourself against any type of financial crime.
If you feel that you have been a victim, or someone you know may be a victim, you may call and report the incident to any Toronto Police Station, or by contacting the main Toronto Police switchboard at 416-808-2222.
The Financial Crime Unit strives to work in partnership with our communities to prevent these types of offenders, and also identifying them in order to bring them to justice.
