King County Councilmember Pete von Reichbauer hosted a town hall meeting addressing identity theft issues Tuesday night at the Auburn High School Library.
The meeting brought together law enforcement members and other stakeholders to discuss identity theft prevention and remediation. Speakers – including Rose Torgerson, director of training with the Washington Coalition of CrimeVictim Advocates – discussed common and emerging forms of identity theft, and how to combat them, as well as what to do if you become a victim.
Representatives from the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office and the Office of the Attorney General, as well as the Washington State Identity Theft Alliance, were featured speakers. The panel also answered questions from the public.
