Leading the UK's fight to cut serious and organised crime


The Annual Report & Accounts detail the work of the agency to fight serious and organised crime in 2018/19.

22 July 2019

Serious and Organised crime presents a chronic threat to the UK, and has a corrosive effect on our communities and our economy. It affects more UK citizens, more frequently than any other national security threat, killing more of our citizens every year than terrorism, war and natural disasters combined.

“We also established new, multi-agency centres to tackle chronic national issues such as economic crime and County Lines offending.

“However, demand on the NCA is already high, and continues to grow. Advances in technology, continued criminal exploitation of international borders, and a greater propensity for violence among many perpetrators, mean that SOC is increasing in both scale and complexity.

“Improvements to funding arrangements are key to helping the NCA and our partners to effectively tackle SOC. To deliver maximum impact, it is vital that the NCA, and the whole system, have the right capabilities at the right time.”
