Police and Crime Commissioner for West Yorkshire | WYPCC

Cyber Crime

Cyber-crime is an umbrella term for different types of offending which take place online, or where technology is used as a means and/or target for the attack. Crime carried out using internet-based technologies differs from ‘conventional’ offending in that it is often initiated remotely (perhaps from another country). It can impact many people simultaneously, and provides a level of anonymity for the offender. We need to do more to understand cyber-crimes such as online fraud, grooming, and cyber bullying, and help to educate the public about these risks. Work with private industry will be needed to develop the right tools 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.
