National White Collar Crime Center Stats

FYI, see here (PDF) for statistics from the National White Collar Crime Center on trends in arrests, sentencing, recidivism, and fines/penalties for embezzlement, fraud, forgery and other white collar crimes involving money between 1990 and 2000.

Among other things, the statistics show a sharp increase in the number of arrests for embezzlement between 1990 and 2000. Some have suggested that the greater reliance of businesses on computerized accounting systems makes embezzlement easier. Others believe that the sharper public focus on white collar crime is increasing the willingness of business owners to report embezzlers to the police.
