A review of 'Fraud: Time to choose'

Published on: 5 August 2021

Publication types: Fraud and Spotlight

Police Forces: All local forces in England and Wales

Background

In 2018, the Home Secretary commissioned HMICFRS to carry out a thematic inspection of fraud.

We conducted our inspection between March and July 2018. In April 2019, we published Fraud: Time to choose – An inspection of the police response to fraud. In that report, we made 16 recommendations and identified 5 areas for improvement (AFIs).

We have revisited our previous inspection to see how the police service has responded to the recommendations and AFIs we made in that report. This report presents our findings on the progress that has been made.
