Eric Caron has held senior positions within the Department of Treasury, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and INTERPOL. Throughout his career, he successfully initiated and managed covert operations that identified and disrupted international WMD proliferation networks, terrorism, terror financing, and transnational criminal networks involved in drug smuggling, human trafficking, and intellectual property rights (IPR) violations.

He was the lead DHS official in Dubai, responsible for preventing WMD materials from entering the U.S. and military technology from being acquired by Iran. In addition, he led training in anti-money laundering, counter-proliferation, and border security for UAE and Oman Police and Customs Officials. He also traveled to Afghanistan to lead an anti-money laundering and corruption seminar.

Former Special Agent Caron concluded his career as the Resident Agent in Charge, Homeland Security Investigations, Providence, Rhode Island, where he led the state’s largest counterfeiting investigation, resulting in the seizure of over one million dollars of counterfeit NBA and NFL sporting apparel. In addition, he oversaw the successful prosecution of more than a dozen child pornographers.

His career highlights include the very first Department of Justice prosecution of several executives who illegally provided a defense service and exported controlled U.S. technology to former Russian military facilities. The imported finished Russian technology was subsequently sold to the U.S. Military. In addition, he arrested a former dean of Moscow University and his Belarus business partner who was attempting to acquire US F-15J radar equipment.

The author is a graduate of Northeastern University and is a Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist (CAMS). He has completed a marathon and a triathlon and is a mixed martial artist.

Eric Caron is one of seven children and a fraternal twin. His late father was a decorated New Bedford, Massachusetts Police Officer, and former Marine.

When he is not lending his knowledge and expertise to the country’s continuing fight against crime, evil, and terrorism, Eric Caron is likely to be found spending time with his family, at the gym working out, or walking along the beach.

He believes, as his father taught him, that family, country, and God come first. He also believes strongly that, as John Adams once said, “We are a nation of laws, not of men,” and no man or institution is above the law.
