The Challenge

As serious and organised crime evolves, so too do the skills and capabilities that law enforcement need to investigate and disrupt the most dangerous and technologically sophisticated offenders. To maintain its proactive edge, the National Crime Agency must effectively harness and utilise emerging technologies and the latest research in order to deliver and maintain innovative and world-leading specialist capabilities in intelligence collection and real-time data analysis, achieved in large part through the effective training of the next generation of NCA officers and analysts.
