About the webinar

Fraud is on the increase generally but in these times of global lockdown, the heightened uncertainty and vulnerability has made this increase even more dramatic.  As fraud reporting increases so will the data and digital evidence available to the police.  Fraud reporting is likely to continue to rise after the lockdown is over and people start to return to normality, resulting in a further increase of these data volumes. 

How can the police service make the best use of this data and digital evidence to improve their service and keep communities safe?
