Writing Effective SARs: Start with Why

CAMS Credit: 1

This webinar addresses effective Suspicious Activity Report (SAR) writing in the context of the SAR’s ultimate purpose: to assist law enforcement in investigation and subsequent prosecution of criminal activity.

After an introductory discussion of how submitted SAR data is reviewed and stored, Laurie Kelly, CAMS will present detailed recommendations for constructing an effective SAR narrative. She will also review the appropriate use of SAR form checkboxes, the SAR attachment feature, and the distinction between “new” and “continuing activity” SARs. Finally, Laurie will introduce the concept of SAR case reports as an effective tool in case management as well as providing valuable detailed information to law enforcement upon request.
