Special Agent Halse Earns CFE Credential

 DOR is pleased to announce that Investigative Services Bureau Special Agent Darrell Halse has been awarded Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) credential from the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE).

In order to become a CFE, Special Agent Halse had to meet a stringent set of criteria and pass a rigorous exam administered by the ACFE.

"Special Agent Halse has completed all the requirements for the CFE credential through hard work and determination," stated Andy Fergel, chief legal counsel for the department. "The knowledge he gained and the training he received will be beneficial to the department’s tax compliance efforts in investigating tax fraud."
