Special Investigations and Prosecutions Bureau

The Special Investigations and Prosecutions (SIP) Bureau is responsible for the investigation of financial crimes, such as embezzlements, investment frauds, business frauds, insurance frauds, employment-related fraud, welfare fraud, identity theft, tax evasion and financial elder abuse.

The bureau, led by Chief Gary M. Ertel, handles cases that are usually more complex, time intensive and require a variety of technical skills and training not possessed by most prosecutors. Assistant District Attorneys assigned to this bureau work alongside seasoned investigators and retained forensic accountants.
