Detective Chief Inspector (DCI) Edelle Michaels was appointed the Head of the Insurance Fraud Enforcement Department (IFED) in April this year. 

Edelle brings with her over 27 years of experience as a police officer – the bulk of which she has served as a Detective in a variety of departments with the City of London Police.  She has led on a number of reactive and proactive major investigations. 

Since its inception in 2012, IFED has now secured over 500 convictions and whilst COVID did impact on operational activity, IFED continued to operate dealing with high risk cases by exception. 

IFED is dedicated to investigating serious, organised and opportunistic insurance fraud, as well as identifying and stemming emerging trends. It is jointly funded by the Association of British Insurers (ABI) and the Corporation of Lloyd’s.
