Become part of the team that safeguards the financial system from the abuses of financial crime. At the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), we are at the forefront in preventing and detecting terrorist financing, money laundering, and other financial crime. Serve at the nation's financial intelligence unit and protect the United States financial system from criminals and terrorist financiers.
The Director of the Office of Special Measures leads a major component of the Enforcement Division, within the U.S. Department of Treasury’s FinCEN. The Enforcement Division is the primary action arm of FinCEN, responsible for enforcing compliance with the BSA through effective, proportionate, and dissuasive measures. The division handles a caseload of BSA civil regulatory matters that are initiated through referrals from examining agencies, as well as FinCEN’s own intelligence-driven targeting of high-priority criminal and national security threats. Each matter can involve a range of compliance and enforcement activities ranging from onsite examination to investigation, summonses of documents and witnesses, injunctions, and civil monetary penalties. The Enforcement Division is also responsible for implementing various statutory special measures enforced by FinCEN including Section 311 of the PATRIOT Act, which is designed to limit the exposure of the U.S. financial system to foreign jurisdictions, financial institutions, classes of transactions, and types of accounts of primary money laundering concern. Additionally, the division investigates unauthorized disclosures of BSA information for possible referral to the criminal authorities.
The incumbent serves as the Office Director for the Office of Special Measures and provides executive oversight over the office’s role in conceptualizing, coordinating, and implementing strategies within FinCEN to utilize its statutory special measures to detect financial crime and to deny those individuals, entities and jurisdictions that are found to be a primary money laundering concern access to the United States financial system. The Office Director is a recognized subject matter expert on these issues.
