GLOBAL COLLABORATION THE KEY TO COMATING TRANSNATIONAL CRIMEIt was an honor to deliver the Keynote at the State Department’s International Visitor Leadership Program hosted by the World Partnerships Organization. I am tremendously grateful for this opportunity to begin a working relationship and friendship with roughly 50 senior prosecutors and law enforcement leaders from around the world. During the conference, I got the unique opportunity to share details about how U.S. law enforcement agencies build long-term undercover operations, create undercover identities, infiltrate global criminal organizations, identify global money laundering techniques, and effectively prosecute those involved in the command and control of organized crime.I also got the opportunity to better understand the significant obstacles that exist legally and politically in many of these countries that prevent well intended law enforcement officers from effectively combating organized crime and corruption. In the end, we all agree that finding ways to share information and law enforcement initiatives offers the best formula to combat transnational crime.The Department of State’s foreign guests included law enforcement leaders from:Argentina.....Chile.....Costa Rica.....Dominican Republic.....El Salvador Ecuador.....Guatemala.....Peru.....Honduras.....Panama.....ParaguayBangladesh.....Cambodia.....India.....Maldives.....Singapore.....Thailand Austria.....Bulgaria.....UAE.....Croatia.....Estonia.....Germany.....Czech Republic.....Hungary.....Latvia.....Serbia.....Netherlands.....MontenegroUnited Kingdom.....Algeria.....Oman.....TunisiaAntigua & Barbuda.....Cameroon.....Ethiopia.....Ghana.....Jamaica ...

EPISODE 2 OF JORDAN HARBINGER'S INTERVIEW OF THE INFILTRATORJordan, host of THE JORDAN HARBINGER SHOW, is an amazingly talented host who was eager to drill into issues that have not been addressed on other shows. We have broken this interview into 8 episodes, which will be posted weekly. During this second episode, Jordan draws out details about how my cover was built, and why it enabled me to convince Pablo Escobar’s closest advisers that I was a sophisticated money launderer they could trust. That same cover convinced senior bank officials that it was safe for them to offer me their laundering services.Look for Episode 3 later this week. ... See MoreSee Less

ATTACKING VIOLENT CRIMINAL GANG ORGANIZATIONSIt was an honor to present a Law Enforcement Masterclasses to the nearly 400 members of the Northwest Gang Investigators Association (NWGIA) at their annual conference in Spokane, Washington. The NWGIA is a premier professional organization of law enforcement officers, corrections officers, and prosecutors dedicated to working cooperatively with communities to disrupt and dismantle criminal gang organizations. This 4-hour masterclass addressed:• How to build and maintain a sound undercover operational plan• Understanding the command & control structure of Colombian and Mexican drug cartels and their money laundering techniques• Comprehending the inner workings of Black Money Markets operating around the world• Why & how China has become a major player in black money markets• Best practices of managing informants• How & why many international banks intentionally launder illicit funds• Strategies used by defense attorneys to attack the credibility of undercover agents and undercover operations in the eyes of jurors• Tactics undercover agents can use to enhance rapport & communication with members of criminal organizations to obtain critical admissions• Understanding how to predict and avoid tactics used by criminals that will otherwise compromise undercover agents• The illicit control Canadian/Italian organized crime and the Hells Angels jointly impose in major Canadian shipping ports • China’s “Sam Gor” syndicate – where and why it earns $17 billion a year trafficking methamphetamine, fentanyl, ecstasy, and ketamine• The money laundering threat posed by poorly regulated casinos in Canada• Why certain Canadian disclosure laws, criminal statutes, and court procedures cause Italian, Chinese and other foreign criminal organizations to prefer operating from CanadaI’ve had the honor of presenting to tens of thousands of law enforcement and private sector personnel at conferences around the world. The NWGIA members I had the good fortune of meeting are among the most dedicated and motivated public servants with whom I’ve had the opportunity to share time and information.

HOST JORDAN HARBINGER’S NEW INTERVIEW OF THE INFILTRATOR (Episode 1)I recently had the privilege of being a guest on THE JORDAN HARBINGER SHOW. Jordan is an amazingly talented host who, after reading my books, was eager to drill into issues that have not been addressed on other shows. We have broken this interview into 8 episodes, which will be posted weekly. During this first episode, Jordan draws out details concerning my role as an Executive Producer on the set of THE INFILTRATOR, interacting with Bryan Cranston, other actors, and Director Brad Furman. We then move on to a discussion about how my journey as a U.S. federal agent led me to becoming a long-term undercover agent, and segway into details about the undercover assignment that led to my infiltrating the leadership of Pablo Escobar’s Medellin Cartel and senior management of what was the 7th largest privately held bank in the world, the Bank of Credit & Commerce International (BCCI). Thanks to Jordan, you will hear a discussion about what it is like for a major criminal to deal with corrupt bank officials that knowingly serve clients with money seeking secrecy from governments, an event that happens far more often than many people are willing to believe. The attached link will take you to this first episode of my interview on The Jordan Harbinger Show. Watch for Episode 2 next week. ... See MoreSee Less
