NCA response to State of Policing report
Report's findings echo our own calls
Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services (HMICFRS) has published its 2018 State of Policing Report. This is our response.
An NCA spokesperson said: "We are supportive of the report’s findings. They echo our own calls for reform of law enforcement at local, regional & national levels and increased investment to match public expectations.
“Our ability to confront the rapidly evolving serious and organised crime threat is undermined by a fragmented and inefficient system.
“Demand on law enforcement is high and increasing. There are increases in prevalence, complexity and harm across crime types resulting in continuous pressure on the system, which requires sustainable future investment.”
