The Independent cites police leaders warning that key investigative skills at the elite National Crime Agency are set to disappear, despite its departing leader acknowledging the need to recruit technologically savvy young officers. It continues that the agency, set up in 2013 to tackle the most serious drugs, sex, trafficking, cyber and international crimes, is finding it difficult to recruit young police officers because of a long-term pay and pensions problem, The source is the association that represents nearly half of the NCA’s 4,200-strong staff.
It is obvious that the NCA’s employee organization would make these assertions and claim that the solution is better pay and conditions.
Another options is to have a pool of security cleared contractors and to pay the market rate for specialist skills bought-in.
