Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt is unveiling a new database called ROAM, or Repeat Offenders Against Military database.
The database will be utilized by state and federal law enforcement officials to help catch sophisticated criminals who are currently targeting military families by offering various scams. Often these criminals will shut down their operations when they feel threatened, and move to another military community across state lines.
Attorney General Schmidt says the new database will improve coordination, and cooperation between federal and state officials by providing court data of previous judgements against the scam artists.
Schmidt is currently working with Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway to draft a letter to all state attorney generals to garner more support for the new program.
