Auto Theft Unit

The Northeastern Pennsylvania Fraud Task Force came into existence in February 1997 after Pennsylvania Legislation was passed funding the unit.

The Task Force consists of a special prosecutor along with several county and state police officers.  The Task Force covers the following 11 counties of Northeastern Pennsylvania; Lackawanna, Luzerne, Wyoming, Monroe, Pike, Sullivan, Susquehanna, Bradford, Carbon, Columbia and Wayne.

The Task Force conducts numerous training classes in order to insure all police departments remain updated with any new and innovative ways to steal vehicles.  The Task Force works closely with all local, state and federal police agencies to aggressively investigate and prosecute anyone involved with auto theft.
