May 10, 2002

The Northeast Chapter of the International Association of Auto Theft Investigators (IAATI) recognized the New York State Insurance Department’s Frauds Bureau for outstanding achievement in the field of fraud investigation and prevention, giving it the the 2002 Anthony M. Kane Achievement Award.

Robert E. Southard, IAATI Northeast chapter President stated that, “This award recognizes the significant work that agencies do in fraud investigation and prevention. I applaud the work of the Insurance Department’s Frauds Bureau and am pleased to impart this notable honor upon them.” He was particularly impressed with the Bureau’s role in coordinating the investigation that culminated in dismantling a huge fraud ring last December with the arrest of over 250 persons.

Responding to the announcement NY Insurance Superintendent Gregory V. Serio stated that, “We are honored to receive the 2002 Anthony M. Kane Achievement Award. This Award acknowledges the Northeast Chapter of the International Association of Auto Theft Investigators’ high regard for the Frauds Bureau’s significant and aggressive work fighting fraud. I am pleased to be afforded this great honor and accept it on behalf of our Frauds Bureau whose work is effectively combating fraud and protecting New York’s consumers from the results of insurance fraud–higher rates.”

The Award will be officially presented on May 15th at the Northeast Chapter’s Annual Banquet in Philadelphia.
