in conjunction with Academy for Social Justice
featuring Dame Lynne Owens DCB, CBE, QPM, Director General, National Crime Agency
The National Crime Agency (NCA) leads the UK’s fight to cut serious and organised crime, drawing on unique capabilities to target those offenders at the highest-end of high-harm. As the threat facing the UK from serious and organised crime evolves, we must consider how well our intelligence and investigation techniques are keeping pace with offenders?
In this free seminar, Dame Lynne will outline the role technology increasingly plays in enabling serious organised criminals and their groups, exploring how it can extend the reach of offenders and increase the risk to those most vulnerable to criminality.

Sophie will then share learning from the programme, including how Mind and Body identifies a huge amount of young people who would otherwise be ‘under the radar’ and how they ensure positive outcomes continue beyond the end of delivery.
