Sergeant Paul F. Bilotta, CFE
Chicago police sergeant and CFE helps rebuild after fraud
Like a number of Certified Fraud Examiners (CFEs), Sgt. Paul Bilotta, CFE, of the Chicago Police Department became interested in fraud when it hit close to home. In the late 2000s, the president of the Chicago Police Sergeants’ Association was arrested when it came to light that he had embezzled more than $1 million from his fellow officers’ dues. “He hurt his friends who trusted him, and he hurt his co-workers who believed in him,” Bilotta told the Chicago Tribune. Bilotta never intended to get involved with the case but ultimately found himself as one of the leaders of the association as they rebuilt.
I truly enjoy being a part of this organization and having all the resources that are made available to CFEs. If you use what is offered to you through the ACFE, you can't lose.Sergeant Paul F. Bilotta, CFE

Outside of work is busy for me. I enjoy boating, fishing, skiing, tinkering with cars and home repair. I'm not sure how I have time to actually go to work. As of today, I have 1,165 more days of work before I can join the retirement club, but who’s counting?
ACFE membership is open to individuals of all job functions, industries and levels of experience who are interested in the prevention, detection and deterrence of fraud. If you want to level up your anti-fraud career, we can help.
