About National Insurance Crime Bureau
With a 108-year heritage, the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) is the nation's premier not-for-profit organization dedicated exclusively to fighting insurance fraud and crime.
NICB was formed in 1992 from a merger between the National Automobile Theft Bureau (NATB) and the Insurance Crime Prevention Institute (ICPI), both of which were not-for-profit organizations. The NATB, which managed vehicle theft investigations and developed vehicle theft databases for use by the insurance industry, dates to the early 20th century. The ICPI investigated insurance fraud for approximately 20 years before joining with the NATB to form the present National Insurance Crime Bureau.
NICB is an intelligence-driven and operationally focused organization that leads a united effort of insurers, law enforcement agencies, and representatives of the public to proactively identify, combat, and prevent insurance crime.
To be the preeminent organization fighting insurance fraud and crime.
