Mr. Alan Campbell: The Police Central E-Crime Unit was launched on 30 September 2008 and will provide law enforcement support for electronic crime reported to the National Fraud Reporting Centre (NFRC), and will also help develop the overall policing response to electronic crime. It is envisaged that this unit will be operational in spring 2009 and the relationship it will have with the Payment Industry and Police Joint Intelligence Unit (PIPJIU) has yet to be finalised, but work on developing the unit is ongoing.
The National Fraud Strategic Authority (NFSA) was formally created as an executive agency of the Attorney-General's office on 1 October to drive forward a comprehensive national strategy for tackling fraud. It brings together Government, criminal justice practitioners, business and the public, focusing on reducing the harm caused by fraud and making the UK a harder target for fraudsters.
Another part of the National Fraud Programme, the NFRC, will radically streamline the way that the public report fraud to the police, while its intelligence bureau will equip law enforcement agencies with a powerful intelligence tool and help form the basis of better prevention advice and alerts for businesses and the public. The NFRC is expected to become operational in spring 2009 and details of how it will operate are still being finalised. However, it is envisaged that it will accept reports of fraud both from individual members of the public and from organisations such as the PIPJIU.
