National Crime Agency
The National Crime Agency (NCA), a new single law enforcement agency, is to be responsible for leading the national response to serious and organised crime.
The press release states that the Agency will comprise four commands: Organised Crime, Economic Crime, Border Policing and CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection) and will have a National Cyber Crime Unit to reflect the broad range of threats that are posed by serious and organised criminals.
Keith Bristow, Director General of the NCA said:
'The NCA is a UK-wide crime-fighting agency, which will have the capability to tackle serious and organised crime in areas that have previously had a fragmented response, such as the border, cyber and economic crime, and those where we need to increase our impact, like child protection and human trafficking.'
