star this property answer text <p>The National Crime Agency (NCA) operates UK-wide but as a result of not securing legislative consent the activities of the NCA in Northern Ireland are restricted. Under current arrangements the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) is able to access information and advice from the NCA including from its Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Command. What is missing, however, is access to operational support.</p><p>This government is disappointed by the decision of the Northern Ireland Executive not to agree to give NCA officers police powers. However, policing is devolved in Northern Ireland, and this is something we must respect. We continue to support Northern Ireland Justice Minister David Ford’s efforts to secure full operational powers for the NCA under appropriate accountability arrangements tailored to Northern Ireland’s structures.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

This will make Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK a safer place and means the most serious criminals can be pursued wherever they are. The Order details commencement of the provisions, some of which will come into force the day after it is made, including the extension to Northern Ireland of all of the relevant civil recovery provisions relating to freezing and recovery orders.

The Crime and Courts Act 2013 (National Crime Agency and Proceeds of Crime) (Northern Ireland) Order 2015 requires the Northern Ireland Policing Board to monitor the exercise of the functions of the National Crime Agency in Northern Ireland. The interim Memorandum of Understanding between the National Crime Agency and the Northern Ireland Policing Board states the Board is required, not later than six months after the end of each financial year, to issue a report relating to the policing of Northern Ireland for the next financial year. The report will include an assessment of the exercise of the functions of the NCA in Northern Ireland. It further requires the Director General of the National Crime Agency to attend the Northern Ireland Policing Board and, in order to assist them, the National Crime Agency is to provide, on a quarterly basis, performance reporting on the exercise of the NCA’s functions in Northern Ireland which will be aligned to the key threat areas in the National Control Strategy, as outlined in the NCA’s Annual Plan. The NCA is committed to playing its role in tackling serious and organised crime in Northern Ireland.</p>
