This session will provide attendees with the opportunity to discuss the main challenges they face in working collaboratively to combat economic crime ..
Allowing them to share their experiences and encourage cross sector collaboration. Although the precise scale of economic crime in the UK is unknown, the 2020 House of Commons Briefing on Economic Crime predicts it will accumulate to hundreds of billions of pounds per year. Additionally to this, the broad geographical nature of the crime, its tendency to be committed online, and the information gap between the public and private sector means that working in partnership is vital to effectively combat economic crime. The creation of the National Economic Crime Centre in 2018, along with the plans for an Economic Crime Court completed by 2025, illustrates the increased efforts to prevent, detect and prosecute perpetrators of economic crime. Through increased collaboration across police forces, national bodies and local stakeholders, law enforcement agencies can take greater steps to combat economic crime. Join us at Combatting Economic Crime Conference 2021 to hear the latest updates and strategies from expert leaders in combatting economic crime. You will hear best practice case studies on preventing, detecting and prosecuting economic crime, across both police forces and national agencies, as well as tools for increasing public awareness and providing victim care services.
