2018 Training Presentations at OCATI Meetings
|The Guest Speaker at the February 2018 OCATI
was Investigator David
Highway Patrol / OCATT,
a presentation on "Updates on Fraudulent Purchasing of Vehicles."
David's presentation hit home with many of the attendees as he discussed recent cases handled by OCATT and some of the local police agencies, car rental companies, and dealership security personnel in attendance.
|The Guest Speaker at the January 2018 OCATI
was Deputy District Attorney Dan
County District Attorney's Office / OCATT,
who gave a presentation on "Vehicle Theft Review / New Laws
2018." To say that many of the new laws appear to give the
criminals the advantage would be an understatement.
The new 2018 OCATI Officers were introduced: Alex Natividad (President), Melissa Somers (Vice President), and Betty Ashley (Secretary).
