West Midlands Police to trial self-service crime reporting platform

Budget cuts West Midlands Police has announced plans to introduce self-service crime reporting as part of cost-cutting measures. Chief Constable David Thompson said online methods of crime reporting for less serious offences was being explored as part of efficiency savings. However, England and Wales Police Federation chairman Steve White described the proposals as barmy .

People will not be forced to use the service, but they will be presented with it as an extra option. Under the plans, members of the public and small-business owners would be able to submit their own statements for less serious offences such as criminal damage, shoplifting and bilking, where people leave a shop or garage without paying, according to Thompson. As part of their submission they would have the option of uploading digital evidence, such as images captured by their smartphone, to the platform. West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner David Jamieson said: We need to be at the cutting edge that enables those who want to be able to report crimes online to do so. Vulnerable victims would be directed to 999 or 101 services, he added. But White said it was another example of chief constables recognising that they do not have the resources to do the basics.

Private Investigators License

Overview of the UK S.I.A Private Investigators licence In the Private Security Industry various sectors have already been licenced such as: Manned guards, Door supervisors, Close protection operatives, Public space surveillance (CCTV) operators and Security guards by the Security Industry Authority. The S.I.A is the organisation responsible for this regulation and reports to the Home Secretary.
Private Investigators License

The Security Industry Authority1 has a series of objectives which cover these professions and the Private Investigator sector, such as: “Providing services and standards to their customers”, “Delivering regulatory activities effectively and efficiently”, “Delivering a development programme that continues effective regulation of the private security industry” and “To be recognised internally and externally as a model of good practice”.

As Licensing for Private Investigators is a government priority2 in the UK.

The following indices can be drawn from existing literature:

Although Private Investigator licences and the requirement for a business licence are still subject to Ministerial approval, the momentum is there and a whole new world of regulation, inspection and bureaucracy is coming.

A typical S.I.A Licence costs: 220.00 and lasts for 3 years. To get the S.I.A Private Investigator licence you need to pass the, “Fit and Proper person” tests and need to have successfully completed a, “Test of Competency”, such as The Association of British Investigators Training Academy: IQ Level 3 Award for Professional Investigators3 or the BTEC Professional Investigators4, costing around: 300.00 – 400.00.

Please note that that the Draft British Standard for the Provision of Investigative Services recommends that the competence necessary to complete an investigation has been demonstrated by the supplier of the services: Conducting investigations, conducting interviews, searching for information and preserving evidence, surveillance techniques, understanding and working to relevant laws and standards and the ability to report findings the syllabus of the Level three Awards5….

The rush amongst Investigation companies to gain as much kudos and credibility as possible by attaing, “Voluntary , Kite marks, such as: British Standard 1020006, has abated and “Self regulation”, is, now, the order of the day. The organisations and businesses that wish to bid for government contracts have enroled on the Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS) – involving eligibility checks, an assessement conducted by an external body and hefty annual registration fees.

Please note that in Northern Ireland some of the criteria for assessing convictions are: “Conflict related”. All applications are actually assessed on an individual basis and the decision is specific to each licence type. The SIA licensing system decision is open to appeal.

In order to apply for a licence you must have the right to work in the UK but you do not have to be a British Citizen.

With your licence you can begin your journey as an investigator, but, only experience, continual training and luck will ensure you make a successful profitable, career in the sector.

If you can t beat them, recruit them: enlist young hackers to fight cybercrime, says infosec chief

Cybersecurity A poacher-turned-gamekeeper approach is needed to encourage younger hackers to turn use their skills for positive impact and help companies tackle cybercrime, a cybersecurity chief has suggested. Dr Jamie Graves, CEO of cybersecurity firm ZoneFox, says: At a time when cyber-crime continues to cripple companies and over two-thirds of businesses can t find enough talent to defend their company against cyber-threats, we should be asking how we can get these talented young hackers to fight crime, not contribute to it. His comments are in response to recent research by the National Crime Agency (NCA), which has found that peer respect and popularity are motivating factors for young cybercriminals.

According to the study, some offenders begin by participating in gaming cheat websites and game modification forums before progressing to criminal hacking forums. While Graves agrees that targeting and removing the free tools that exist online that allow hacking to take place must be a focus, more innovative approaches are needed. Such is the global shortage of cybersecurity skills, professionals can command huge salaries He says: We live in a country where technology encompasses every inch of our daily lives especially the younger generations. The report details that criminal hackings are considered cool and done to impress peers. Now is the time for the UK to really focus on tackling this by putting an emphasis on trying to flip young people s attitudes on cyber-security from bad to good . As well as avoiding the risk of getting a criminal record, so-called ethical hacking offers a powerful financial incentive. Such is the global shortage of cybersecurity skills, professionals can command huge salaries. The global cybersecurity workforce is expected to have 1-2 million jobs unfilled by 2019. The report, titled Pathways into Cybercrime , which is based on debriefs with offenders and young people on the fringes of criminality, explores why they are assessed as unlikely to commit more traditional crimes get involved in cybercrime.

According to the report, financial gain is not necessarily a priority for young offenders. The sense of accomplishment at completing a challenge, and proving oneself to peers in order to increase online reputations are the main motivations for those involved in cyber criminality. One offender, who was jailed for Computer Misuse Act and fraud offences, told officers, it made me popular, I enjoyed the feeling I looked up to those users with the best reputations . The report also highlights that there is no socio-demographic bias, with people across the country from different backgrounds among offenders. However, the average age of cybercriminals is much younger than other crime types. In 2015, the average age of suspects in NCA cybercrime investigations was 17 years old, compared with 37 involved in drugs crime cases.
