What is the National Crime Agency (NCA?)

At their core remit, the NCA investigates and disrupt the highest serious and organised criminals. They work with other agencies, using intelligence to target the highest risk offenders who are deemed to potentially cause the greatest harm to the community. Further, they have specialist capabilities that police forces do not necessarily have.  

Which offences does the National Crime Agency investigate?

This includes a wide range of offences such as corruption by public figures or politically exposed persons, money laundering operations in connection with the London property market and international corruption. The reach of the NCA is not limited to the UK and aim at increasing protection against corruption overseas by engaging with foreign law enforcement agencies.

The NCA lead and support law enforcement operations worldwide in connection with offences that threaten children and young people. This includes online child abuse, when the dark web and the mainstream internet are used to groom children in person and online offence. If you create, share or view indecent images of children, you may be investigated by the NCA.

This often includes crimes in relation to hacking (for example of social medial accounts), phishing (e.g. emails asking your for security information), malicious software (including ransomware) and other attacks against websites.

The National Crime Agency leads a substantial number of enforcement actions in relation to drug offences, from county line drug networks involving the transport of Class A drugs (heroin, cocaine, crack cocaine) whether by yachts, aircrafts, post or airline passengers.


The NCA works with other agencies to pursue serious and organised fraudsters involved in a wide range of crimes such as identity theft, impersonation of NCA officers, or counterfeit and pirated goods which put consumers at risk.

This includes firearms generally smuggled from Europe through routes from Central and Eastern Europe to the UK via Belgium, France or the Netherlands. The firearms may be purchased on the dark web and sent via the post. They may be used by street gangs for their personal protection or in connection with armed robberies and drug distribution.


This are offences involving the recruitment of usually vulnerable individuals who then become trapped in a wide range of industries such as the sex industry, the construction industry, agriculture,  cannabis farms, car washes or nail bars. The crimes may involve the exercise of control of such individuals, the confiscation of their ID documents, and or their earnings as ‘payment’ for their journey to the UK or their living costs.

The UK financial intelligence unit from the NCA works with other Financial Intelligence Units in Europe and throughout the world to detect suspicious activity in connection with the property market or legitimate companies set up in the UK or offshore fir the purpose of laundering illegitimate funds.

The offences committed are generally in relation to Illegal immigration by air, rail, sea, or road e.g. clandestine smuggling of migrants through Lorries or small boats. Crimes may also involve fraudulent visa applications, applications for leave to enter and for leave to remain, applications for legitimate travel documents, which the applicant would otherwise not be eligible for.
