FFCL Conference and Awards Ceremony
National Anti Fraud Network (NAFN) Data and Intelligence Services were proud to be one of the main sponsors of the Fighting Fraud and Crime Locally (FFCL) Conference held in London. The programme was packed with a number of local authorities, working in counter fraud, sharing their experience, good practice and success stories. The FFCL conference was followed by an early evening awards ceremony to recognise the hard work, determination, and achievements of staff working to support crime and fraud prevention.
The nomination demonstrated an impressive ability to prevent exposure to fraud risk across a range of services and councils, generating significant savings at a time of austerity. Devon Audit Partnership lead the field in their locality by raising profile and awareness, ensuring the public purse is protected in a way that ensures confidence and trust. They have received over 1,500 fraud allegations in the last 4 years, resulting in over 100 prosecutions and 300 formal cautions. This cohesive approach of involving everyone in the fight against fraud, with a ‘zero tolerance’ approach, has meant not only substantial savings, but also improved staff morale – making the team worthy of the ‘Prevent’ award.Congratulations and well done to Ken Johnson and his team.
