Led by Deputy Head of Financial Crime Compliance at Binance, Nils Andersen Röed, and Head of Law Enforcement Training, Jarek Jakubcek, this initiative aimed to effectively combat virtual asset-related crimes.

This collaboration with local regulators, law enforcement, and government agencies expands cooperation with law enforcement agencies across Kenya. Binance provided comprehensive, on-demand training sessions, empowering Kenyan officers with updated knowledge to combat virtual asset-related crimes effectively.

Nils Andersen Röed, Head of Law Enforcement Training, highlighted: ‘For several years, Binance has significantly aided users affected by theft, scams, or hacks in the crypto industry. Now, with an e-crime training program, our ambitions are even higher.’

In 2022, Binance actively collaborated globally with law enforcement, conducting over 70 workshops dedicated to training officers in countering cyber and financial crimes.

Jarek Jakubcek, Head of Law Enforcement Training at Binance, emphasized: ‘Close collaboration between industry players and law enforcement agencies is vital for preventing and addressing cybercrime, including combating fraud. Engaging with prosecutors across Africa, supported by law enforcement agencies, Binance is dedicated to safeguarding user assets and contributing to a safer virtual asset ecosystem across the continent.’

In 2023, globally, the dedicated Law Enforcement Training Team, in collaboration with the Investigations Team, delivered 120 onsite and online training sessions and workshops, consistently earning high praise and positive feedback from the law enforcement community. 

Simultaneously, Binance processed over 52,700 law enforcement requests from January 1 to November 13, 2023, serving 12,699 registered law enforcement officers worldwide through its Government Law Enforcement Request System. This exceeded the number of requests handled in 2022, which totalled over 50,000.
