Illicit Tobacco: Trafficking Patterns & Organized Crime

Back to List

The Illicit Tobacco: Trafficking Patterns & Organized Crime Training seminar provides attendees with a variety of perspectives on tobacco trafficking and how law enforcement, policy makers and private industry have confronted the problem.  NW3C has offered contraband tobacco training since 2008.

Overall, this seminar provides a unique opportunity for law enforcement to hear local, state and federal perspectives on tobacco contraband enforcement efforts.  The feedback we have received  from attendees of past events has demonstrated that this seminar training is a tremendous success.  NW3C looks forward to continuing its support of efforts at all enforcement levels to tackle this serious crime.

This one-day seminar will cover topics of interest such as:
  • Fundamentals of the Illicit Cigarette Trade
  • Contraband Cigarettes and Organized Crime
  • Licensing Requirements and Cigarette Tax Collection and Avoidance Schemes
  • Retail Store Inspections
  • Relevant Federal and State Laws
  • Interviewing Suspected Cigarette Traffickers
