Protecting Yourself against Financial Crimes

The Windsor Police Service is committed to protecting the citizens of Windsor from all types of crimes.

Financial related crimes cost Canadians billions of dollars annually.

The Windsor Police Service's Financial Crimes Unit works diligently with numerous law enforcement agencies as well as community partners to effectively and proactively investigate a myriad of fraudulent scams.

Although we have a strong team of investigators, who are dedicated to identifying, locating and bringing these offenders to justice, one of our goals is to work with the vulnerable members of our community to prevent financial crimes entirely.

Through education, you can prevent being a victim of a financial crime. The perpetrators of these types of offenses may be stopped in their tracks if their targets are armed with a little bit of knowledge.

These offenders are only successful, if they are given the opportunity to deceive you.

You may be a target, but you don't have to be a victim!

Through these safety tips we hope to assist you and your family from becoming victims of financial related crimes. Simply click on the scams to learn about them. If you feel you've been a victim of a crime please contact the Windsor Police Service and report it.
