 The Identity Theft Council is creating the most far reaching identity theft response initiative in the nation’s history, a unique network of local and national partnerships between schools, financial institutions, communities and law enforcement across the country to provide better local support for victims of identity theft.

The goal is to create a victim support and community education model that will be available to any city or community in the country that wants to participate and we expect that eventually more than 1,000 cities will join the Identity Theft Council network.
