About This Event:
We are excited for you to join us for the official launch of the Minnesota Identity Theft & Cybercrime Information & Resource Network (MITCIRN).

The first half of the day will be the official first meeting of the network, featuring a welcome from former Minnesota Attorney General of the State and State Senator Skip Humphrey. Participants will learn more about MITCIRN, select a committee to engage in targeted efforts to strengthen victim support in Minnesota, and network with other attendees.

In the afternoon, there will be advanced training on often-neglected forms of identity theft (criminal, medical, child, and military identity theft), as well as training geared towards law enforcement, prosecutors, victim advocates, and professionals engaged in community outreach. 

About The Minnesota Alliance on Crime and the Minnesota Identity Theft & Cybercrime Information & Resource Network:
The Minnesota Alliance on Crime (MAC) is a membership coalition of 83 crime victim service providers in Minnesota that connects systems, service providers, and victims to advance the response for victims of all crime. 

The Minnesota Identity Theft & Cybercrime Information & Resource Network (MITCIRN) brings together partners from community advocacy organizations, victim/witness programs, law enforcement, government agencies, and other organizations/agencies across the state who are dedicated to improved access to supportive services for victims of identity theft and cybercrime. MITCIRN meets quarterly to discuss emerging research, engage in training opportunities, share resources, and advance statewide efforts to combat identity theft and support victims through targeted committee work.
