I served 10 years as a police officer but decided I needed more education so I went back to school where I enrolled in UVU’s criminal justice program. Just prior to graduation the Criminal Justice department announced a new Financial Crimes Course (CJ 3330) which focused on the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA), Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and tax evasion issues. I took the class and learned of BSA/AML, and terrorist financing careers in the banking industry. I applied for a BSA/AML job at Zions Bancorporation headquarters in Salt Lake City and was hired, in large part because I had taken this Financial Crimes course. Since being hired I have been promoted to a supervisory position in the investigations unit. The CJ 3330 course provided me with tools to a new career and had a direct impact on my success at Zions. I highly recommend this course.
