SERIOUS ORGANISED CRIME AGENCY

SERIOUS ORGANISED CRIME AGENCY

The Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) is a new law enforcement agency in the UK created ‘to reduce the harm caused to people and communities in the UK by serious organised crime.’

It takes over the functions of the National Crime Squad (NCS), the National Criminal Intelligence Service (NCIS), the role of HMRC in investigating drug trafficking and related criminal finance and some of the functions of the UK Immigration Service (UKIS) in dealing with organised immigration crime. SOCA assumed its functions on Saturday 1 April 2006.

The website of SOCA is still a little empty although the annual plan 2006/2007 (PDF) has been put online and gives some more insight in this organisation.
