Wen-Chi Huang, assistant professor in the Border Police Department of the Central Police University (CPU) in Taiwan, visited University of Houston-Downtown (UHD), along with six others CPU delegation members Wednesday, July 6. Huang was invited to guest lecture Criminal Justice Professor Hsiao-Ming Wang's White-Collar Crime class (CJ 4304).

Huang spoke to UHD students about fighting telecommunications fraud from a globalization perspective.

Huang said, "Taiwanese crime rings tend to set up their internet servers in the United States due to America's higher standard of human rights."

Wang, who also serves as director of the UHD Bayou Connection Program, said, "The trend of globalization provides white-collar crimes and organized criminals an opportunity to easily commit crimes across borders." Wang added that Huang's presentation offers UHD students an opportunity to assess crime issues with worldwide perspective.

Huang served as a detective with Taiwan's Criminal Investigation Bureau for 18 years before transitioning to higher education in 2014. He has strong practical experiences in policing, including serving for three years as a police liaison officer in Vietnam.
