Overview of the webinar

This presentation begins by reviewing the narrative section of a Suspicious Activity Report. Then we’ll review today’s marketplace for weed, cocaine and opioids including heroin. We wrap up the presentation by doing a summary review and analysis of the cash transactions that BSA officers and staff use in their investigations.
