The logical response, you’d imagine, would be to have more trained police working on the issue.                              But it’s believedthat Britain’s Home Office is going to reduce the size of the Serious Organized Crime Agency (Soca) by up to400 when it announces it new police budget.   The National High Tech Crime Unit was absorbed by Soca, which has taken on responsibility for all cyber crime investigations.   The majority ofthe eliminated positions are expected to be in the vital field of IT research.
