Tonight At The Mob Museum "Fighting Organized Crime in the 21st Century"

Foreign computer hackers breaking into the U.S. government’s systems. Drug cartel violence along our nation’s southern border. A resurgence of Mafia activity in Italy so alarming the pope has denounced it. The fact is, despite the tireless efforts of law enforcement and the eradication of much of the American Mob’s activities, organized crime outfits remain active around the world. On Wednesday, September 23, at 7 p.m, The Mob Museum, the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, presents its next Courtroom Conversation: “Fighting Organized Crime in the 21st Century.” The event is made possible by a grant from Nevada Humanities.

The Museum has assembled a panel of national and regional experts on organized crime including Virginia Commonwealth University Professor and Criminologist Jay S. Albanese; Assistant Special Agent in Charge Patrick G. Brodsky of the FBI’s Las Vegas Division’s Criminal Branch, Support Services Branch and SWAT; and Thomas P. Ott from the U.S. Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network.

Attendees at this Courtroom Conversation will learn:
● What types of rackets attract global organized crime groups today
● How law enforcement agencies at all levels are tackling these new threats
● What, if anything, private citizens can do to protect themselves
● How the worldwide reach of organized crime affects Las Vegas
