holding answer 2 December 2013

Cyber crime is a serious threat to the UK and this Government has taken action to tackle it. The Government has so far committed £63 million of funding from the National Cyber Security Programme to build law enforcement capabilities to tackle all forms of cyber crime and to support crime prevention work.

The decision as to how policing teams are resourced, deployed and the duties those officers undertake is an operational matter for chief constables, in association with their police and crime commissioner. The National Crime Agency will lead operations on organised crime, which includes cyber and economic crime.
