IACC Law Enforcement Training Summary
New York City Police Department
November 9, 2023
The IACC recently conducted training under our Law Enforcement IP Training Program in New York City. This program provides authorities throughout the country with the tools to act strategically in the detection and seizure of counterfeit goods.
Training was held at the NYPD Police Academy and provided an opportunity for 100 officers and supervisors whose assignments include enforcement of New York State’s trademark counterfeiting laws to participate in this event. Featured presentations were held on case studies, counterfeit crimes relation to organized crime and trade fair product identification exercise comparing up to date information on product lines and known counterfeits. Rights-holders from 38 brands provided individualized instruction to strengthen efforts and increase the ability to deter sales of counterfeit products. Brand representatives described the officers as highly engaged in their interactions.
The agenda also included a presentation on the IACC’s Law Enforcement Training App where brands share their materials on our exclusive (law enforcement only) digital platform, making this information available 24/7/365.

We would like to extend our appreciation to the NYPD for the use of their Academy. The IACC strongly supports law enforcement.
A special thanks to Jim Ricaurte and his team from Allegiance Protection Group for their assistance in organizing this successful event.
