Duration: 57 Minutes
CPE Credits: 1

This webinar will provide high-level guidance for writing a quality Suspicious Activity Report (SAR). A SAR writing team can comprise practitioners from a variety of backgrounds with different writing styles. The concern for SAR-obligated entities is striking a balance between a SAR that meets regulatory requirements for filing while still being useful for law enforcement. 

In this webinar, you will explore what makes an effective SAR by explaining how to draft strong narratives. You will hear examples of common issues, errors and omissions that might draw scrutiny from stakeholders or inhibit law enforcement from using SARs. 


You Will Learn How To:

  • Identify effective versus ineffective practices for writing SARs
  • Employ strong narrative techniques
  • Assess prevalent issues, errors and omissions in SARs
