star this property answer text <p /> <p>This Government is committed to ensuring that victims of crime have access to high-quality, effective and timely support to help them cope with and, as far as possible, recover from the effects of crime. Support is offered irrespective of whether the crime has been reported to the police, and includes where someone has been the victim of digital or online crime.</p><p> </p><p>In September last year, the Government published “Our Commitment to Victims”, which included a commitment to establish a new nationwide Victims’ Information Service. This will provide the first ‘one stop shop’ to ensure better information and support is available and easily accessible to any victim of crime– whether that be searching for local support services or finding out more about to expect from the Criminal Justice System.</p><p> </p><p>We implemented a new Victims’ Code in December 2013 to give victims of crime clearer entitlements throughout the criminal justice process following their reporting of a crime to the police. This includes the entitlement to make a Victim Personal Statement (VPS), which gives victims a stronger voice as they are able to explain to the court how the crime has personally affected them. The Victims’ Code also entitles victims of the most serious crime, persistently targeted victims and vulnerable and intimidated victims to enhanced services and support, such as receiving information on pre-trial therapy and counselling. The new Victims’ Code also includes an improved section on complaints, and it explains who the victim should contact and what to expect if things go wrong.</p><p> </p><p>The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) has made more money than ever before available for victims’ support services in England and Wales, increasing the contribution offenders make to the costs of providing support and almost doubling the budget in previous years of circa £50m, with the majority allocated to Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) to ensure local provision of support for victims matches local need.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>In relation to the number of people convicted of an offence involving domestic abuse who were also involved in digital or cyber-crime against the same victim in each of the last three years, data is not centrally collected and recorded upon which actual figures or an estimate could be provided.</p>

The Government has so far committed £70 <br>million of NCSP funding to build law enforcement capabilities to tackle cyber <br>crime. This includes the establishment of the National Cyber Crime Unit in the <br>National Crime Agency (NCA), and cyber teams within each of the Regional <br>Organised Crime Units across England and Wales. <br><br>Almost every cyber crime investigation has an international element and as a <br>result the NCA has prioritised building partnerships with key international <br>partners to better tackle this common cyber threat. To this end, and as a <br>result of NCSP investment, the NCA has deployed a number of International <br>Liaison Officers overseas. The NCA, EU and other international partners (US, <br>New Zealand, Australia and Canada) have agreed common threats and goals which <br>are informing the development of a model for proactive global joint cyber <br>investigations. An example of this approach is the recent US-led investigation <br>into a serious malware threat which saw the UK, under Project TOVAR, play a key <br>role in the disruption of criminal infrastructure and prevention messaging to <br>UK to businesses and the public. Project DISPUTED is an NCA-led investigation <br>which targets the Shylock malware variant, a sophisticated system employed by <br>criminals to steal online banking credentials, targeting the UK banking sector <br>in particular. This is the first project of its kind for a UK law enforcement <br>agency and involves the NCA bringing together partners from across law <br>enforcementand the private sector, including the FBI, Europol and others.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Action Fraud is the national reporting centre for fraud and cyber crime, and takes reports on behalf of all police forces in England and Wales. In June, it was extended to cover Northern Ireland. Action Fraud was set up to improve reporting of what has traditionally been an under-reported crime type. Official figures support the decision to centralise reporting: in the year ending June 2015, recorded fraud offences more than trebled from 72,000 before the centralisation of reporting to over 230,000.</p><p>Action Fraud works in conjunction with the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB): as of April 2014 both are operated by the City of London Police, the national lead force for fraud, which means one organisation is responsible for the whole process of taking reports and analysing them. The NFIB analyses Action Fraud crime reports and attempts to match them with other crimes and identify viable lines of enquiry so that an intelligence package can be passed to the police force best able to launch an investigation (usually where the suspect is believed to be located).</p><p>Not all crimes recorded by Action Fraud and analysed by the NFIB will have viable investigative leads: fraudsters and cyber criminals may be based overseas or use false details. Nevertheless, in 2014/15, the number of crimes sent to police forces was almost 62,000. This was an increase of over 50% on 2013/14. The City of London Police are working with local forces to share expertise on how to investigate these types of crimes. City of London Police will be introducing a new IT system in May 2016, comprising of a new and much easier to use online reporting tool and a new data analytics platform within the NFIB. It will improve the identification of viable crimes to be passed to police forces, and the ability to provide improved victim service and care.</p>
