International Case Study 2: The Serious and Organised Crime Agency (SOCA)
- 254 Downloads
Presenting the second of the two international case studies, this chapter presents an analysis of the United Kingdom’s Serious and Organised Crime Agency’s (SOCA) application of strategic intelligence against transnational organized crime (TOC). As with the CISC case study, the research presented is derived from multi-stage qualitative analysis (using content and discourse analysis techniques) of corporate documents and intelligence products. The chapter presents an explorative, analytical narrative of SOCA’s operating context and its application of strategic TOC intelligence, touching briefly on SOCA’s successor, the National Crime Agency. The chapter demonstrates that the need for intelligence and strategic TOC intelligence in law enforcement appears to exist regardless of the structure or management model for high-policing and the supporting intelligence processes.
