Titan, the name for the North West Regional Organised Crime Unit, was established in 2009 as a collaboration between the six police forces in Cumbria, Cheshire, Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside and North Wales to tackle serious organised crime that crosses county borders in the region. The mission of the unit is simple - to tackle organised crime groups causing the greatest levels of harm to communities in the North West.
The Regional Cyber Crime Unit (RCCU) tackles cybercrime and cyber-attacks. The unit specialises in tracking down those engaged in large-scale computer fraud and identity theft, as well as tackling the most serious computer hacking enquiries. They also have dedicated officers working with education, businesses and members of the public to help them understand the threat from Cybercrime and what they can do to protect themselves from this threat.
