The Money Laundering and Asset Forfeiture Training Program (MLAFTP) is designed for law enforcement professionals seeking a foundation and understanding of how to investigate money laundering and the issues involved with asset forfeiture. The program provides an interactive overview of the money laundering and asset forfeiture investigative process. The program content focuses on participant application of Money Laundering and Asset Forfeiture investigative techniques through an interactive investigation of a simulated money laundering case. The money laundering suspect will take the participant through a maze of financial transactions specifically designed to conceal and disguise the source, location, and ownership of illegal proceeds. With that information the participants will utilize criminal investigative techniques to identify the witnesses and evidence that will be used to prove each of the elements of a money laundering violation and perfect the related asset forfeiture. The investigation of the simulated case will be interspersed with relevant blocks of instruction that will augment the investigator’s current investigative skills and lead to a successful conclusion to the investigation.


This program is open to investigators, auditors, analysts, attorneys, and individuals serving as direct law enforcement support personnel. The participant needs to have computer skills (Microsoft Office, PowerPoint, and Excel) prior to enrolling in this program.

Required Training Materials

Participants must bring a laptop computer with MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Adobe Reader installed.  The computer must also have a CD drive.
