OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Attorney General Scott Pruitt has announced the creation of an Anti-Money Laundering Division to provide Oklahoma with the first statewide focus on combating such criminal activities.

Pruitt announced the new unit on Thursday. The division will use teams of prosecutors, special agents and forensic accountants to investigate and prosecute money laundering cases.

It also will provide training materials and courses for use by district attorneys, law enforcement and its other partners in Oklahoma.

The division will be led by Assistant Attorney General Kris Jarvis.

Before joining Pruitt’s office in 2013, Jarvis was as an assistant U.S. attorney for the Western District of Texas in El Paso and served as a special assistant U.S. attorney for the District of New Mexico.
