Hodges University recently named the Collier Identity Theft Task Force the official advisory council of their new Identity Fraud Institute. This announcement comes just weeks after the opening of the Identity Fraud Institute at the university with the goal of prevention and education about identity theft and fraud.
Sheriff Kevin Rambosk of the Collier County Sheriff’s Office is one of the co-founders of this task force, along with Dr. Michael Reagen. Hodges new president, Dr. David Borofsky was a big supporter of the institute, along with Rambosk.
There are many local businesses involved in the Collier Identity Theft Task Force. CCSO, local police departments, the Internal Revenue Service, the AARP, and 20 other organizations all work to protect local citizens from identity theft and keep them educated about identity fraud and theft.
In their new position as advisory council the task force will work to provide guidance for the institute and in return the institute will provide the resources necessary for the task force to continue its mission. They’ll also bring together many organizations to help develop identity and fraud theft solutions. Both the task force and the institute will benefit from the relationship…and so will the community.
