The Serious & Organised Crime Agency has been hailed as the UK’s equivalent to the FBI, an outfit full of the best hand-picked detectives in the business fighting crime at its highest levels.
Which is why there might be some embarrassment in the ranks afterĂ‚Â a document containing the names & movements of 230 SOCA agents was left on a train by an unnamed agent in London last week.
A spokesman said: “This is clearly a breach of security & something we are taking very seriously. I wouldn’t want to be in the shoes of the agent who left the file on the train. It’s not exactly the actions of a top lever crime fighter, more like a ridiculous schoolboy error.”
