Report of the Commissioner of Police.
The Board received a report of the Commissioner of Police that provided Members with an update on the Joint Fraud Taskforce (JFT).
The T/Commander of Economic Crime explained that the JFT was a very positive initiative with great potential. He explained that its Terms of Reference would be finalised over the coming months.
A Member asked how this initiative intersected with the banking sector. The T/Commander of Economic Crime explained that their main contact was with UK Finance, with an individual contact and dedicated team for the NECC (and JFT).
A Member asked if this would contribute to the ECVCU model. The Temporary Commander of Economic Crime explained that the Ministry of Defence (MoD) was releasing recommendations around this, though the issue of sustainable funding needed to be addressed.
