Robert Giczy, Special Agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation
In 2004, the FBI established a rapid deployment Art Crime Team. The team is comprised of 16 special agents, each responsible for addressing art and cultural property crime cases in an assigned geographic region. These agents receive specialized training in art and cultural property investigations and assist in art-related investigations worldwide in cooperation with foreign law enforcement officials and FBI legal attaché offices. Since its inception, the Art Crime Team has recovered more than 15,000 items valued at over $800 million.
In this lecture, FBI Special Agent Robert Giczy discusses his work and experience in preventing and countering art fraud and theft as a member of the Art Crime Team.
