National Crime Agency inspection 2020
14 Jul 2020 02:06 PM
we yesterday published the findings of our inspection of the National Crime Agency’s criminal intelligence function.
HMICFRS has a statutory duty to carry out inspections of the National Crime Agency (NCA). Following an inspection we must report to the Home Secretary on the efficiency and effectiveness of the agency.
In our sixth NCA inspection, we examined its effectiveness at meeting one of its two core responsibilities, the criminal intelligence function.
The aim was to answer the question: How well does the NCA discharge its criminal intelligence function? This included inspecting its:
- current capabilities;
- alignment with the Serious and Organised Crime Strategy and the National Strategic Assessment;
- ability to provide a single, authoritative, strategic assessment of the threat from serious and organised crime; and
- compliance with national intelligence standards and existing legislation.
