National Strategic Assessment of Serious and Organised Crime 2020
The National Crime Agency has published the National Strategic Assessment of Serious and Organised Crime 2020. It provides a single authoritative picture of the threat to the UK from serious and organised crime.
It shows that we are confronted with a rapidly evolving threat that is becoming increasingly complex as criminals exploit the fast expansion of technology to engage in illicit activity.
Our priorities remain tackling the high harm, high impact offenders who: exploit the vulnerable through modern slavery, human trafficking, people smuggling and child sexual abuse; dominate communities through wholesale drugs supply networks and the illegal firearms trade, and undermine the UK’s economy and infrastructure through their criminality, seeing money syphoned off through illicit transactions and cyber-crime.
Serious and organised crime has a corrosive impact on the UK and its citizens. Each of us is affected by it in some way and every one of us has a role to play in fighting it.
