Protecting Consumers &
Our vision is to protect consumers and safeguard businesses through cross-boundary intelligence-led enforcement projects in England and Wales. We also act as a safety net for consumers by ensuring that products entering the UK and the food chain are safe. We fund national teams that are hosted within local authorities. These include the eCrime, Feed, Regional Investigations, Estate Agency, Intelligence and Scams Teams.
