I would be grateful if you could confirm how many police officers and police staff you have employed dedicated to investigating fraud and other economic crime please? e.g. in a Fraud Squad and Financial Investigation Unit?
Please also indicate where you have officers/staff seconded to other national/regional units who are dedicated to investigating fraud and other economic crime. Where this is the case, indicate whether these numbers are in addition to those requested in my first question.
We have 38 police officers and staff where it is specifically recorded that their roles involve investigative fraud and economic crime. Of those seven are seconded.
In addition there are two vacant posts.
