The IACC also participated in the CCROC (Cook County Regional Organized Crime) annual law enforcement conference in Oakbrook, IL. Each year, the conference brings together over 500 law enforcement personnel from the local, state and federal sectors for Illinois and the 10 surrounding states for the two-day training, information and networking event. This year, CCROC included multiple brand holders with displays of genuine and counterfeit goods to train and inform officials about the harms associate with counterfeit goods.

These events are part of the IACC’s U.S. Law Enforcement IP Training Program that provides law enforcement throughout the country with up to date information and insight drawn from brand experts, enabling them to act strategically in the detection and seizure of counterfeit goods.
