About

The North East Regional Cyber Crime Unit (NERCCU) along with colleagues from Cleveland Police; Durham Constabulary and Northumbria Police make up a regional network of specialist cyber officers that deliver nationally approved messaging. We work closely with the National Crime Agency (NCA) and are a trusted partner of the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC).

In collaboration with Specialist Cyber Officers from Cleveland Police; Durham Constabulary and Northumbria Police, we deliver nationally approved products and services, reducing risk and increasing resilience within the region across the cyber threat landscape.

We have a dedicated team who work closely with the National Crime Agency (NCA) to deliver a national initiative called ‘Cyber Choices’ which focuses on preventing young people from becoming involved in cyber crime. The aim of Cyber Choices is to educate young people who have an interest in technology to use their skills safely and legally while also raising awareness of the consequences of becoming involved in cyber crime.

As a trusted partner of the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), our North East Cyber Protect Network (NECPN) provide support and advice to businesses, organisations and individuals, encouraging them to adopt better cyber security behaviours.
