An introduction to the National Crime Agency

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: A National Spotlight

Do you want to learn more about the agency leading the UK’s fight against serious and organised crime?

Civil Service Local are excited to give you the chance to hear from National Crime Agency (NCA) officers on Tuesday 23 March as they give an introduction to the agency and explain their roles within it.

From county lines to international cybercrime the NCA is leading the UK's efforts in combatting the ever changing nature of crime in the 21 century. Although comprised of civil servants, the NCA is a law enforcement agency, something that presents very unique changes compared to other departments and agencies.

Their broad reaching impact and involvement means the NCA interacts with nearly all elements of government both domestically and around the world. They work with the Cabinet Office on National Security and with the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office on international threats, tackling drug trafficking and proactive work on our borders.

Join officers from intelligence, international and threat leadership as they provide an insight into the NCA and give you the chance to pose questions of your own!

When: 12:30 pm  to 2:00 pm on Tuesday 23  March 2021

Where: Microsoft Teams (register for your place through Eventbrite)

Please get agreement from your line manager before booking your place, and ensure that you use a work email address to register on Eventbrite. We will be using MS Teams for this session and we will send you details in advance of  the event. You may use a work or personal device to join the session.

    My nephew (17) would absolutely love this, is it open to the public?

      Thanks Dee, unfortunately, our events are only open to serving civil servants and not those who may aspire one day to join.

        I am trying to join this event from you link and it is not working.

    I have been promoting this event amongst GCFP members in Scotland but it appears to be sold out now! There is still a lot of interest in this, are there any plans for the event to be repeated or recorded and released as a video?

      Thanks for your help in promoting this event, Stuart! We will talk to the NCA about the possibility of recording the event and sharing afterwards; we will let you (and others) know what is possible.

    This event is now sold out ~ is there any possibility of another one please?

    Thank you for your comment Sheila, this event has proved incredibly popular. Obviously NCA staff are taking time out from their day jobs to plan and deliver this event, but we will raise the possibility with them. Equally, we are also looking at whether there are options to record and share the event afterwards for those unable to book a place.

    Yes Ian please let me know too if the NCA plan to record and share the presentation. We have 5 or 6 new Officers joining our team next month and it would be invaluable for them to watch it.

    Used the link supplied for the NCA event and it came up with a "Cannot connect you" message - I tried pasting the link into Edge and still got same message - even tried joining direct from browser as opposed to MS Teams but got same message all the time! Guess I won't be the only one impacted by the IT failure.

    I promoted this event across my workplace and those that managed to get tickets have been unable to join the event today. Has this been an issue with others? I hope that the event can be shared as a recording or another set up.

      HI, apologies to those that have not been able to join the meeting. Apparently, we have reached a technical limit on attendees that was not expected and we are looking at how to resolve it for future meetings.
