Fraud Unit Mission and Philosophy

Mission

The Fraud Unit protects the public from economic harm by investigating allegations of criminal insurance fraud. Responsibilities include receiving and reviewing reports of fraud; initiating inquiries and conducting investigations when the Department has reason to believe that insurance fraud may have been or is being committed. We actively seek criminal indictments, make arrests and assist in prosecutions to deter insurance fraud in Texas.

Philosophy

We support the agency philosophy promulgated by the Texas Department of Insurance.

  • We will follow the agency philosophy in our words and actions.
  • We will follow the ethical standards established in the agency philosophy in all our dealings with the public and co-workers.

We believe in practicing the highest ethical standards of law enforcement.

  • Peace officers promise to obey their oath of office and to adhere to the Law Enforcement Code of Ethics.
  • All members of the Unit will conduct themselves according to the highest principles of their professions and in an exemplary manner.

We have a responsibility to protect and serve the people of the State of Texas.

We will educate and assist the public, the insurance industry and other law enforcement agencies in efforts to identify and combat insurance fraud through enforcement of applicable statutes.
