Response to Reform press release about online crime

Oliver Cattermole, College of Policing Chief of Staff, said:
“The nature of demand placed on policing has changed and it is important that officers and staff are supported to continue to keep the public safe.

​Almost any investigation can include an online element and that represents an evolving challenge for policing. The College is equipping people with the skills to investigate crimes with a digital element and as well as developing a cyber-crime investigation manual we have to date trained 1,700 digital media investigators. In the longer term, moves to help policing develop as a profession can help officers and staff become more adaptable in responding to changing demand."
