Alternate Title: Suspicious Activity Report Stats Technical Bulletin [July 2014]
From the Document: "Welcome to the first issue of SAR [Suspicious Activity Report] Stats, the successor publication to 'The SAR Activity Review: By the Numbers'. This issue examines only data contained in the 1,369,529 unique FinCEN [Financial Crimes Enforcement Network] SARs (Form 111) with filing dates between March 1, 2012 and December 31, 2013, inclusive. The adoption of the new unified SAR form and the implementation of e-Filing enable the financial industry to report suspicious activity more swiftly and with more specificity. The changes also mean the data presented in this issue are a new baseline for financial sector reporting on suspicious activity. Direct comparisons with reporting numbers in prior years (year on year numbers) will not be presented in this inaugural issue of 'SAR Stats'. The overall 1,369,529 SARs analyzed for this report are organized and presented by industry."
