Bedfordshire Police’s innovative Cyber Hub was launched in 2015 as a new unit dedicated to analysing digital data to investigate cyber crime. Lots of other forces have cyber crime units, but Bedfordshire’s is a ground-breaking comprehensive ‘Hub’ which combines teams specialising in Digital Forensics, Cyber Crime Investigation and Internet Child Abuse Investigation Team (ICAIT). The highly trained investigators use the very latest technological advances to track down cyber criminals - tracing the footprint left by their online activity. The teams also provide investigative support to other criminal cases across the force.
