Snelgrove explained the background to SC: "MOPAC (The Mayor's Office for Policing And Crime*) research found that only 12 percent of business crime in London was being reported to the police, and a lot of that was cyber-crime and fraud. Plus cyber-crime and fraud that was reported wasn't being prioritised, with both resourcing issues and boroughs prioritising issues such as burglary and robbery. Now Falcon is prioritising cyber-crime and fraud, and the hubs have been set up to encourage cyber-fraud to be reported directly to the Met. Falcon is only involved in crimes where there is some impact in London, so it targets cyber-crimes where either the victim or suspected perpetrator is in London. But we liaise with NCCU where there is a national impact and work closely with international colleagues (where appropriate)."
