Aug. 14, 2019—North Carolina Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey has organized its first Criminal Investigations Reserve Unit to combat the growing number of fraud cases in the state, according to a report by Workers Compensation.

Four inductees, who largely have backgrounds in police work, were sworn in last week.

"Today's ceremony is a testament to the character of these men and women who are donating their time to fight fraud – a top priority of mine," said Commissioner Causey. "Fraud costs about 18 cents of every dollar we pay for insurance premiums. With their help -- with each arrest -- we can save consumers' money."

NCDOI's criminal investigators are sworn, state law enforcement officers authorized to carry firearms, make arrests, conduct searches and present cases at all levels of prosecution. They work in cooperation with the insurance industry, state and federal law enforcement agencies and prosecutors. They investigate crimes involving insurance fraud.
