Civilians to help police investigate cybercrimes, says Theresa May

Civilian recruits will help police solve cybercrime under an expansion of the role of volunteers in England and Wales, the home secretary has said.

The plans include measures to give more power to support staff and volunteers.

Forces will be able to identify volunteers who specialise in accountancy or computing for cyber and finance inquiries, Theresa May said.

Unison, which represents police staff, said it was concerned it was a way to “plug the huge gap” left by cuts.
