Police and Crime Commissioner for West Yorkshire | WYPCC

Cyber Crime

As technology develops, so too does criminality and more and more crime is being carried out online. Crime carried out in "cyber space" is borderless and often comes with a level of anonymity for the offender which would not be seen with many conventional crime types, posing challenges for those who are trying to prevent, detect and prosecute such criminals. We need to do more to understand the threat of cyber crimes such as online fraud, grooming, and cyber bullying, educate the public about these risks, and work with others including private industry to develop the right tools and skill sets to properly investigate and prevent these crimes.


Cyber Crime Priority Plan

So that we can all understand more about what we are doing together and want to do together to deliver on our priority areas of work we have developed our 'Priority Plans'.

These plans will be refreshed and renewed and are work in progress but we will report on our delivery against these Priority Plans in public facing Community Outcomes Meetings.

We want to demonstrate the difference we are making in our communities but we also want to know what else we could be doing to keep people in West Yorkshire safe and feeling safe.

If you have a positive contribution to make to our Priority Plans please contact the office.
