Met Police to be questioned over response to cybercrime
27th November 2014

The Metropolitan Police Service is set to face questioning over its response to cybercrime in London.
 
The General London Assembly will quiz the service over its new 300 strong Fraud and Linked Crime Online (FALCON) command.
 
It follows claims from Commander Steve Head, from the City of London Police, that there aren’t enough fully trained fraud investigators to tackle the level of cybercrimes in England and Wales. 
 
In the last financial year cybercrime and other types of fraud cost the British economy  £81 billion.
 
Roger Evans is the Chair of the Online Crime Working Group at the London Assembly and will be leading the questioning later.
