Hoosier Agencies Team Up to Battle Unemployment Fraud

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ The Marion County prosecutor's office is teaming with the Indiana Department of Workforce Development to prosecute people suspected of committing unemployment insurance fraud in Indiana.
The two agencies announced the partnership on Monday, saying working together should make it easier for the state to investigate those who receive unemployment benefits but aren't entitled to them.
One deputy prosecutor from the county will deal exclusively with these cases, and the agency will work with the Department of Workforce Development to investigate.
Marion County has jurisdiction over all such cases in the state because the workforce development department's server for filing for benefits online is in Indianapolis. Other counties will still have the authority to charge individuals they suspect of committing unemployment insurance fraud if they choose.
