The review’s recommendations cover the status, roles and responsibilities of the NCA, regional organised crime units, and other national agencies pursuing serious criminality, along with local police forces in England and Wales, to ensure they have the right governance, support and legal powers to deliver on their missions.
- Sir Craig Mackey delivered his final report to the Home Secretary and the Minister for Security at the end of February. We are now considering the review’s final recommendations
