The response to cyber crime is not the sole responsibility of Action Fraud and the National Fraud Investigation Bureau. In 2018/19 we are investing over £50 million to ensure law enforcement has capabilities it needs to tackle cyber crime at the national, regional and local level.

The Action Fraud/ NFIB grant has increased from £6,943,000 in 2016/17 to £8,000,000 in 2017/18.
