The El Paso Benefits Program Integrity (BPI) team is part of a task force honored as “Best Team” by Homeland Security Investigations.

The BPI team is part of the Document Benefit Fraud Task Force (DBFTF), a joint task force that collaborates with federal, state, and local law enforcement to identify and investigate fraud, waste, and abuse. Homeland Security Investigations held its annual awards ceremony and presented the DBFTF with the “Best Team” award. The BPI team has been a part of the task force since 2015. During that time, the group’s enforcement statistics include 58 arrests, 28 indictments, 25 convictions, and the seizure of $610,000.
