New powers to be given to an elite FBI style police force are being outlined in a drive against organised crime.
Monday's plans include a national witness protection scheme and formal deals with gang members. They could also allow use of phone tap evidence.
The Serious and Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) is being set up to target organised gangs and "Mr Bigs".
Home Secretary David Blunkett said the "scourge" of organised crime was now massive and had to be confronted.
So....what say u?
Think this is the way to go or do u think we should take things slowly and make sure there is no other possible way of dealing with this?
