The enforcement section investigates alleged violations of the Securities Act. The enforcement section acts on complaints
filed with the Division, on referrals made to the Division by other law enforcement and regulatory agencies, and upon
information obtained while monitoring the Ohio securities marketplace. The enforcement section has broad investigatory
powers, including the authority to subpoena documents and testimony. The Division cannot recover money on behalf of
aggrieved investors, but can take administrative, civil, or criminal action against those who violate the Securities Act.
The Division can also suspend or revoke a license to sell securities in Ohio.
