All police forces in England, Wales now have cyber crime units

Monday 15 April 2019 | 10:42 CET | News

The National Police Chiefs' Council (NPCC) announced that all police forces in England and Wales now have a dedicated cybercrime unit thanks to a multi-million pound investment from the UK Government. Before the launch of these units, only 31 percent of forces had dedicated cyber capabilities. 

Forces had access to GBP 7 million of funding to build these units, including hiring specialist officers and staff and investing in training, equipment and technology. Investment in the units by Home Office and National Cyber Security Programme will continue through 2019/2020 and 2020/2021.
