Officers cut - but employee numbers up

The number of police officers working in the Financial Crime Unit (FCU) has been cut over the last four years.

However, the overall number of employees in the Unit has risen by two.

The figures have been revealed by the Department of Home Affairs after received a question for written answer from Onchan Member of the House of Keys Julie Edge in the House of Keys.

In its response, it shows the total number of police officers working on financial crime in 2014 was 16, with 12 now in the FCU in 2018.

However, both permanently employed civilians and employees on temporary contracts in the unit have increased.

There were no workers on temporary contracts five years ago, but there are now four in the Financial Crime Unit, whilst the number of permanently employed civilians has gone from three in 2014 to five this year.
