The Service does not employ any officers for the sole purpose of fraud investigation.  When necessary, internal officer investigations may be carried out into allegations of fraud, bribery or corruption.  If deemed appropriate, Internal Audit may look into these and where appropriate they would be passed onto Bedfordshire Police.  Expenditure on fraud investigation with Baker Tilly, our Internal Audit providers, totalled £12.7k during 2014/15.
