Ahead of the Labor Day holiday weekend in the U.S., The American Gaming Association (AGA) and National District Attorneys Association (NDAA) announced a new partnership.
The objective of the pairing, we’re told, is to expose illegal gambling that will include training for law enforcement officials at this year’s Global Gaming Expo (G2E).
G2E is the world’s largest gaming trade show. It takes place September 27-29 in Las Vegas.
The first-ever comprehensive training is part of NDAA’s Comprehensive Training Series and AGA’s “Stop Illegal Gambling – Play it Safe” initiative.
“This partnership offers the latest evidence that illegal gambling, including the massive illegal sports betting market, is a priority for law enforcement at every level across the country,” said Geoff Freeman, president and CEO of the American Gaming Association. “Global Gaming Expo offers the perfect opportunity to convene district attorneys and others in law enforcement with gaming industry professionals to learn best practices for exposing shady operators that are tied to organized crime and who siphon revenues from governments and the legal, regulated gaming industry.”
