Leicestershire police recognise the scale and impact of fraud and that anyone can become a victim of fraud whether that be an individual or a business.

Fraudsters not only take victims money they also take their sense of security, confidence and wellbeing. In recognition of this threat, Leicestershire Police have published their policy for responding to and investigating allegations of fraud to adequately meet the needs of victims and increase the communities confidence that fraud reported to them will be recorded and investigated effectively and efficiently.

This approach is focused on providing victims with consistency and clarity, with the ultimate aim of increasing the prospect of a positive outcome.
