About the NCA

The National Crime Agency (NCA) leads UK law enforcement's fight to cut serious and organised crime. We have national and international reach and the mandate and powers to work in partnership with other law enforcement organisations to bring the full weight of the law to bear on serious and organised criminals.

About us

Organised crime is one of the greatest threats to the UK's national security. The role of the NCA is to disrupt and bring to justice those serious and organised criminals who present the highest risk to the UK.

Crime threats

Organised crime covers a diverse range of activities. Defining organised crime in terms of specific threats is a practical way of understanding and tackling it. Analysis of these threats can also be found in the  National Strategic Assessment

Most Wanted

The NCA works in partnership with Crimestoppers as well as UK and overseas law enforcement to locate and arrest individuals who are wanted and believed to be overseas.
