About the NCA

The NCA is a new crime-fighting agency with 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 in cutting serious and organised crime.

About us

Organised crime is one of the greatest threats to the UK's national security. In 2010 the Home Secretary announced the creation of the NCA to lead the UK's fight to cut serious and organised crime. 

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.
