Show Summary Details

Preview

This article using Freedom of Information requests to all the major police forces in the UK identifies the resources dedicated to specialist police/economic crime. The article shows there has been an increase in resources in comparison to other recent studies, and it also illustrates the organizational structures dedicated to economic crime/fraud, the priority given to fraud/economic crime, and the growing use of civilians. It also makes comparison to some other major investigative bodies dedicated to fraud; and concludes that although the resources maybe increasing, they are still not commensurate to the scale of the problem of economic crime and more resources are still required.
