SANTA ANA - No matter how small or large the group, the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) Foundation reaches out to California residents who want to know more about the proactive steps they can take to protect themselves from becoming a victim of fraud.
"We also don't let language get in the way," said CSLEA Foundation Chairman and CSLEA FOP Lodge 77 Vice President Kenny Ehrman. "On October 15th, CSLEA's Ricardo Sanchez and Chris Ehrman were guest speakers at a town hall sponsored by the Mexican Consulate in Santa Ana for the Spanish speaking community. Scammers think they can pull a fast one on folks who don't speak English, so it is important that we make our presentations in languages other than English, when needed."
Also participating in the town hall were representatives from the California Department of Business Oversight and the State Bar of California.
"We had a small but enthusiastic crowd learning from experts on ways to prevent fraud and how to take action if they've already been victimized," said Ehrman. "Many attendees stayed after the presentation to receive advice on individual issues. Helping the public is at the core of why we chose careers in law enforcement."
