  • Coinbase, Chainalysis among firms employing ex-police
  • U.K. grapples with losing talent to crypto exchanges

Cryptocurrency firms, armed with cash and in need of regulatory experience, are poaching U.K. cybercrime cops with offers of double or triple pay.

The National Police Chiefs’ Council, the representative body for all U.K. forces, says they are losing experienced cybercrime officers and staff at 3 to 4 times the rate of the rest of policing.
