Well at least they're trying
They've limited resources, and according to the newspapers today police forces may face a 20% cut in future budgets/manpower.
Whilst there is an argument that the vast amounts of money reportedly spent on spying on us all could be better spent, perhaps on preventing cybercrime, that's not an issue that can be affected by individual police forces, nor the national bodies such as the NCA, and certainly not the officers and staff working at this sort of level.
Perhaps a little more moral support from the IT "community" (sorry, a dreadful term but I cannot at present think of one better) would be appropriate. Someone somewhere has hopefully not had their computer hijacked today as a result of the disruption caused to these (alleged) villains, in the same way as I or my loved ones might not be mugged tonight if the beat patrol has raided the house of a known mugger this afternoon.
I'm never going to know about that, and the system isn't perfect, but for the time being it is what we've got.
Perhaps we as an industry should devise better OS that ordinary users dont need a degree level education to configure properly to reduce the risks of such crime in the first place in the same way as as we dont expect to be mechanical engineers to use a normal car safely.
