The program features law enforcement agencies from Southern California, including the L.A. County Sheriff's Department, the LAPD, the Sheriff departments of Riverside, San Bernardino, and Ventura counties, and federal agencies like the FBI, DEA, and ATF.

According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, The Fraud and Cyber Crimes Bureau educates and empowers the community to protect themselves from the increasing threats of cybercrime, fraud, and identity theft and increases awareness of how theft, fraud, and other crimes are performed through the use of computers and other electronic devices. The Fraud and Cyber Crimes Bureau works to increase the understanding of how cybercrimes should be reported and what information needs to be provided to investigators and is dedicated to raising awareness of what current scams and techniques are being used by thieves to commit fraud.
The bureau was originally created in 1994 as the Commercial Crimes Bureau, but transitioned to the Fraud and Cyber Crimes Bureau in 2016.
