UCFPD plans to offer four courses over two days that instruct students on how to identify counterfeit money on Feb. 2 and Feb. 3.

The courses are called “Funny Money: Learn to identify counterfeit cash,” and are free and open to the UCF community. They were created for people who handle cash registers, and are designed to make students more aware of the current counterfeiting trends and the most tricky counterfeiting methods to catch.

The classes will be held the UCF Police Department, at 3610 Libra Drive, and each of the classes are limited to 15 participants. They will be taught by Detective Eric Walton, who is UCFPD’s lead investigator of technology-based crimes.

There will be morning classes from 9 to 10 a.m, and afternoon classes from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m.

To register, or for additional information, call the UCFPD Community Relations Office at 407-823-3224 or email
