Cyber Specials and Cyber Volunteers are the core of the digital community with high levels of technical expertise joining policing in their fight against cybercrime.
The resulting ‘cyber special’ and ‘cyber volunteer’ (CSCV) programme has been recognised as a significant opportunity to augment police capability against the growing threat from cybercrime. CSCV’s are now deployed within the digital investigations teams in a number of UK police forces. Furthermore, adoption of the programme as good practice is being driven through national bodies such as the Home Office Cyber Crime Policy Unit and the National Crime Operations Coordination Committee. Now with joint policing and government oversight, the cyber volunteer arena has gone from strength to strength and CSCVs are delivering new capability that is bridging the gap between the police and the evolving cyber criminal.
