THIS is the new team that will be disrupting criminals and stopping economic crime. 

The team, known as the Economic Crime Unit Proactive Team, launched today (April 2), and comprises of six officers, led by Detective Sergeant Rachel O'Brien. 

Detective Inspector David Fenn Said: “The new home office funded team will be working with local officers and our partner agencies to target organised criminals, locating and seizing their illicit ill-gotten gains to deter offending and protect our communities from further harm.

“This new team will mean we will not only look to put those involved in serious and organised crime behind bars but we will seek to take away the money and property they have gained.”
