Fraud: Time to choose - An inspection of the police response to fraud

In 2018, the Home Secretary commissioned HMICFRS to carry out an inspection of the police response to fraud. HMICFRS inspected the effectiveness and efficiency of the police response to fraud, including online fraud.

This inspection which was commissioned by the Home Secretary took place between March and July 2018 and looked to assess whether:

  • law enforcement has a well-designed strategy for tackling fraud;
  • organisational structures provide the necessary capacity, capabilities and partnerships; and
  • victims of fraud receive a high-quality response.
