The Government takes seriously the threat of all crimes involving the use of computers. We know that such crime is not a problem that sits comfortably within local policing structures, and that historically most forces have underinvested in their capacity to respond effectively to it. We therefore believe that national co' ordination would bring some obvious benefits to the policing of these crimes. As discussed in recommendation 19, the cross' Government Fraud Review, which reported last year, similarly recommended the creation of a National Fraud Reporting Centre. We believe it is important that we ensure that all efforts to combat crimes online are co' ordinated.It is essential that any structure developed must meet clearly defined needs to allow an effective response, this means consideration of all the issues relating to crimes involving the use of computers and how best to tackle them in a coherent fashion. This will, in turn, lead to decisions on the infrastructure that will be needed to support that.
