Responding to today’s Public Accounts Committee report into the growing threat of online fraud, Clive Grunshaw PCC, Association of Police and Crime Commissioners lead for Online Fraud and Cybercrime, said:
“Police and Crime Commissioners will welcome this report which shines a light on a key area of policing. What is particularly useful is the recognition that tackling online fraud is not only an issue of preventing crime, it’s also about ensuring victims receive a high quality service from the police.
“The picture for this type of crime will be different across the country, with different forces experiencing different levels of demand, however online fraud does not recognise county borders. As the Online Fraud and Cybercrime lead, I will be working with fellow PCCs, policing and criminal justice partners and other agencies to tackle this growing problem.”
