 United Kingdom's National Crime Agency

The National Crime Agency (NCA) is a national law enforcement agency in the United Kingdom which replaced the Serious Organised crime Agency. It became fully operational on 7 October 2013 and is a non-ministerial government department. The NCA includes the child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre as an individual command, and parts of the National Policing Improvement Agency. Some of the responsibilities of the UK Border Agency relating to border policing also became part of the NCA.


Like its predecessor SOCA, the NCA has been dubbed the "British FBI" by the media. The NCA Director-General, Chief Constable Keith Bristow, has the power to direct other police chiefs to concentrate their resources where necessary, effectively making him the most senior police officer in the country.


The NCA has over 4,500 officers, and an annual budget of £494 million.
