Jeff then introduced the Guest Speaker, Los Angeles Police Department Detective Jimmy Martinez who gave a presentation on "Identity Theft and Vehicle Theft Fraud."

Following the presentation, Jeff opened up the Roundtable Discussion. Webmaster Gary Labb (Santa Ana Police / OCATT [retired]) advised the attendees of the encrypted online networking roster and gave the attendees the password to allow them access to the roster.
Jeff invited those who purchased luncheon tickets to enjoy their lunch while networking with the others in the room. A catered lunch was provided to the attendees by the staff from Skylinks at Long Beach Golf Course. This luncheon was enjoyed by the Meeting attendees.
During the luncheon, the raffle was conducted by Jeff Enfield, with the help of Johnny Miyasaki and Joe Starbird. The raffle helps raise money for WSATI funds that assist in putting on future seminars, as well as supporting events such as the San Diego and Orange County ATAC Vehicle Theft Recovery Officer of the Year programs.
