Due to rising cost and expenses generated by students who register for our courses and do not attend without notification, it has become necessary to institute the following policy:

In order to qualify for a full refund, students (or their employing agencies) must cancel no less than two weeks prior to the commencement of the course. Cancellations must be received via e-mail, and/or fax to the attention of the course coordinator. A confirmation of receipt and a cancellation number must be obtained from the coordinator. No claims will be accepted unless the aforementioned is adhered to. Cancellations made within the two week time period are subject to a $150 fee. Substitutions of students may be made at any time. Please call us immediately if you have any questions.


Miami-Dade Police Department's Global Cargo Theft Symposium



The South Florida Cargo Theft Task Force (SFCTTF) encompasses a host of federal and local law enforcement agencies with extensive experience in cargo theft investigations. The SFCTTF prides itself in collaborating with law enforcement agencies across the nation to combat cargo theft in partnership with industry leaders.

This four-day symposium will deliver intense instruction by industry experts on current trends and innovative methods that are being utilized by criminal enterprises. Industry and law enforcement professionals will highlight topics that include basic characteristics of the transportation industry, recommended best practices to follow with security measures to protect your cargo, fraudulent pickup preventions and how to prepare and package complex investigations. Trends and security measures when transporting by railway and freight forwarding companies will also be discussed.

Our goal is to leave you with a clear understanding of the immense financial impact that cargo theft crimes have on the global economy. The course will illustrate recent cargo theft cases showcasing actual investigative techniques, and how the use of modern technology can be applied to solve complex cases. This symposium also represents a great networking opportunity with your local cargo theft investigators, as well as industry leaders who are eager to meet you.


The fee for this course is $681
