About the NCA
Serious and organised crime is one of the gravest threats to the UK's national security. The National Crime Agency sits at the heart of the law enforcement response, protecting the public by disrupting and bringing to justice those serious and organised criminals who pose the highest risk to the UK.
We identify and disrupt serious and organised crime by investigating and securing the prosecution of those responsible. We also lead, support and coordinate work across law enforcement, locally, regionally and nationally to reduce the impact of serious and organised crime on the UK’s communities and deter people from becoming involved in such activity.
NCA officers work at the forefront of law enforcement, building the best possible intelligence picture of all serious and organised crime threats; relentlessly pursuing the most serious and dangerous offenders; and developing and delivering specialist capabilities on behalf of law enforcement and other partners.
There's no such thing as a typical NCA officer. We come from different backgrounds and cultures, speak many language and have diverse skills and experiences. What we have in common is dedication and a commitment to protecting the public from serious and organised crime.
