BSO sergeant is first recipient of Certified Fraud Examiner award

Broward Sheriff’s Office Sergeant Ed Madge, supervisor of BSO’s Economic Crimes Unit, has been named the first recipient of the Certified Fraud Examiner of the Year Award from the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE). The award was presented to Sgt. Madge in August 2002 at ACFE’s13th Annual Fraud Conference & Trade Show at the Renaissance Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.,Sgt. Madge’s unit boasts an average 70% clearance rate on crimes reported, a remarkably high percentage since economic crimes sometimes go undetected for several days or weeks. Most victims don’t realize they have been defrauded until they receive a monthly bank statement or credit card bills.,“Unfortunately, economic crimes like identity theft, credit card fraud and bank scams are growing and the criminals are becoming more sophisticated,” Broward Sheriff Ken Jenne said. “But the good news is, our Economic Crimes Unit is becoming more sophisticated, too. There’s nothing I’d like more than to see every case end with an arrest.”,A certified fraud examiner since 1994, a Regent Emeritus of the ACFE, and chairman of the ACFE’s Financial Institution Fraud Committee, Sgt. Madge has investigated well over 1,900 fraud cases during his more than 35 years of law enforcement experience. Twenty-four of those years have been spent investigating a variety of fraud cases including fraudulent documents, forgery, telemarketing fraud, money laundering, criminal RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization) violations, and other fraud schemes.
