Offers of triple pay are luring some specially trained UK cybercrime police officers into the private sector

In 2018, the UK began training about 250 officers to investigate, seize, and realize the value of digital currencies, Bloomberg said. Last year, UK Metropolitan Police seized about $400 million of crypto in two hauls involving money laundering

“The loss of experienced cyber officers and staff is a significant problem for us,” Andrew Gould, head of the UK National Police Chiefs’ Council’s cybercrime unit, told Bloomberg. “Their skills are in high demand in the private sector so we can see them doubling or tripling their pay which is why they go.” The NPCC expects the trend to increase over the next year to 18 months.

Coinbase, the biggest US crypto exchange, and crypto research company Chainalysis are among those employing former law enforcement staff. A Coinbase spokesperson told Bloomberg they “can play an integral role in keeping our customers’ funds safe and secure.”
