Building efficient law enforcement capability and capacity:

Following changes in legislation and the merging of national agencies, many forces are restructuring their serious and organised crime departments to increase performance and put specialist teams in place to tackle organised criminal enterprises operating throughout the UK. In order to stay one step ahead of organised crime, police forces are forging closer liaison with other forces, national agencies and other partners, with the sole intention of disrupting and dismantling organised criminal networks.
