Who We Are
The New York Anti Car Theft & Fraud Association, Inc. (NYACT) was founded in 1978 to provide education, training and professional development for the insurance industry and law enforcement personnel in combating vehicle crime and insurance fraud in the Empire State. Our mission is accomplished through regularly scheduled full day and half day training seminars, specialized programs and workshops, and online training. All training is presented by nationally and statewide known experts from the insurance industry and law enforcement sector.

NYACT is an umbrella organization supported by members that include most insurance companies licensed in New York, a broad spectrum of government and regulatory agencies that lend their support to our efforts. NYACT insurance industry educational training seminars are dependent upon and made possible entirely through funding received by our member insurance companies.

NYACT law enforcement educational training seminars are funded by a grant from the New York State Motor Vehicle Theft & Insurance Fraud Prevention Board and administered by the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services. These funds are specifically targeted for law enforcement training. NYACT is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors made up of representatives of our member companies and agencies. 

In order to better serve the membership across New York, the association established a State Office in Albany in 2010. NYACT’s professional staff is here to serve the needs of member companies, agencies and their employees.
