NaVCIS’ commitment to service during coronavirus pandemic – Head of Unit DCI Brett Mallon

The last few weeks have been an incredibly busy time for NaVCIS, as I’m sure it has for everyone, as we adjust to new ways of working during the coronavirus pandemic.

One thing that remains the same is NaVCIS’ commitment to delivering law enforcement services vital to all our stakeholders.

To that end, it’s very much business as usual for us, so please do continue to engage with NaVCIS as you would do normally.

We have in place business continuity plans to increase home working across the team and we’re working hard to maintain standards across our range of operations.

Whether that’s vehicle finance fraud, freight crime, or responding to plant and agricultural machinery offences, our work remains largely uninterrupted, though we have, as I’m sure you can appreciate, slowed down slightly in some areas to accommodate new ways of working.

I’m very grateful to my team for their ongoing dedication, resilience and flexibility. They are definitely NaVCIS’ greatest asset and we wouldn’t be able to do what we do without them.

You’ve no doubt heard this before, but it’s true our response to the coronavirus pandemic is a fast-moving, challenging and unprecedented situation. As a national police unit made up of police officers and police staff, we may also be called on to support national policing and our local forces. I will keep you updated should our position change.

I also appreciate it may not be business as usual for everyone, so please do get in touch if there is anything we can do to support. It’s at times like this when we are definitely stronger together.

Please stay safe and look after yourselves and each other.

Best regards,


DCI Brett Mallon
Head of NaVCIS
