Our chapter was officially formed in January 2007 and incorporated with the State of Florida in February of 2007.
We are affiliated with the International Association of Special Investigation Units. IASIU membership is made up of more than 4,000 individuals representing more than 600 insurance and self-insured companies around the world. Members are employees of insurance or self-insured special investigation units, special agents or supervisors of the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) or Insurance Crime Prevention Bureau. Associate members are insurance company personnel who support the investigative process and the law enforcement community involved in insurance fraud investigation.
Our chapter's purpose is in line with IASIU's Mission:
•Promoting a coordinated effort within the industry to combat insurance fraud;
•Providing education and training for the insurance investigator;
•Developing a greater awareness of the insurance fraud problem;
•Encouraging high professional standards of conduct among insurance investigators; and
•Supporting legislation that acts as a deterrent to the crime of insurance fraud.
Our chapter is not only dedicated to professionalism and to providing industry training; We also give back to the community. Each year when school is getting ready to start we collect supplies for children in need and during the holidays we collect unwrapped toys for Give Kids the World.
