Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services (HMICFRS) has a statutory duty to carry out inspections of the National Crime Agency, and following an inspection we must report to the Home Secretary on the efficiency and effectiveness of the Agency.

In HMICFRS’ third National Crime Agency inspection, we looked at the support provided to law enforcement in respect of serious crime investigations. The inspection examined:

  • How effective are the services provided by the serious crime analysis section, crime operational support and the specialist operations centre?
  • How efficiently are these services provided?

The report below sets out the findings of this inspection.
