Police Force Searching For Additional Work

Recommended Posts

Having reduced crime over the past decade, the police force are now desperate to find some additional work that doesnt involve having to leave the office.

Recruitment plans are underway in the police force to create a new unit responsible for agreeing mortgage applications, and undertaking house valuations.

Could we be shopping for a new house by visiting our local police in the next few years, and will estate agents when unemployed be policing our streets fighting crime ?

Crackdown on £20bn a year fraud

Mortgage fraud was the subject of a recent Acpo report

Fraud is costing the UK £20bn a year, the police say, as they plan to expand their efforts to tackle it.

The City of London Police is recruiting for a national fraud crime force, claiming that the impact of the crime is second only to drug trafficking.

The move comes after a report by the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo) put UK mortgage fraud losses at £700m a year, and growing.

But the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML) has disputed the estimate.

Cost of fraud

The £20bn figure is based on the estimated cost to the UK of stolen assets, lost revenues, and the costs of prevention and investigation.

The new fraud team will be based around the London force's existing expertise in tackling economic crime.

Its role will include training public and private investigators, assisting in complex investigations around the country and drawing up crime prevention advice.

The Acpo review of mortgage fraud said the high profits and low risk was attracting organised criminals.

It called for a specialist mortgage fraud bureau to tackle the false valuations and bogus mortgage applications used by fraudsters.

The Council of Mortgage Lenders says there is very little reliable data available to estimate the extent of mortgage fraud.

It said the police estimate was likely to have featured some double-counting.

But they welcomed the promise of new guidance for police forces around the country on how to identify and investigate mortgage fraud.

You do not have to borrow anything, but it may harm your application when questioned, any salary which may be lied on in court, anything you do overvalue may be given in evidence. Do you understand?

It has been brought to our attention that on the 24th of June you did put forward a mortgage application on a property, more particularly 24 Acacia Avenue Wandsworth that has been valued by Her Majesties Police force for a sum less than the figure you submitted on your mortgage application. Having given due consideration to the offence we are prepared to deal with this offence by fixed penalty notice of £24,000. Failure to pay within 28 days will lead to you being summoned in court, whereby if you are to be found guilty you will serve a sentence of not less than ten years in prison and a fine three times the fixed penalty notice. Murderers will be released early to accomodate you.
