DORSET Police and Crime Commissioner Martyn Underhill, has welcomed the launch of the new National Crime Agency (NCA).
It will be responsible for tackling major organised crime, such as drug and people trafficking and complex international fraud, including cyber-crime.
NCA director general Keith Bristow recently spoke at the regional meeting of the PCCs and Chief Constables at Winfrith.
Mr Underhill said: “Keith Bristow gave an inspirational speech and informative insight into the NCA at our regional meeting, in which he stated his commitment to working with PCCs and forces across the south west.”
Mr Underhill added: “I have total confidence in Keith Bristow.
“He is a man committed to making his new team accountable to the public, more transparent and more linked to the localism agenda. “I wish his team every success in the months and years ahead.
In particular, I welcome the new cyber crime team, which is long overdue.
“Cyber crime is the new emerging threat. “I am confident that this team will assist us in dealing with cyber crime here in Dorset.”
The NCA has more than 4,000 officers and will work with each of the regional police forces in the UK and similar organisations abroad.
