Join us for a discussion on the future of policing economic crime, which explores the case for bold reforms with the help of leading experts
The Russia–Ukraine crisis has placed a renewed spotlight on the UK’s problem with dirty money and London’s role in the global ‘laundromat’. Coupled with a rapidly escalating fraud problem, the UK government is under pressure to tackle a widening range of economic crime.
Initial responses have included the enactment of fast-tracked legislation, in the form of the Economic Crime (Transparency and Enforcement) Act 2022 and a commitment to a second Economic Crime Plan, as well as the adoption of a broader counter-fraud strategy in the summer.
Putting policy into practice through reform and the bolstering the law enforcement response is now the key challenge.
Our discussion, chaired by Karen Baxter, former Commander of the City of London Police, will bring together leading experts in the field of economic crime enforcement to discuss the shape of potential reforms.
