National Crime Agency inspection: national tasking, coordination and governance of the response to serious and organised crime
In HMICFRS’s fourth National Crime Agency inspection, we looked at the efficiency and effectiveness of the national tasking and coordination process and the related arrangements of the strategic governance groups.
The inspection examined:
- the processes for establishing a ‘single authoritative intelligence picture’, which informs national tasking;
- the strategic, tactical and operational tasking processes led by the NCA, which focuses on national priorities;
- how national tasking is influenced by the strategic governance groups led by the NCA, their related threat groups, and strategic action plans;
- how the NCA, police forces across the UK and other law enforcement agencies respond to the national priorities.
The report below sets out the findings of this inspection.
