Serious Organised Crime Agency. Has been referred to by the UK media as Britains FBI. It is sponsored by the home office. But claims to opperate independently from the government. Soca officers can be given the powers of a police constable, customs officer or an immigration officer. The agency, its officers and operations are exempt from the freedom of information act in order to protect national security. Soca will also operate outside of the United Kingdom covertly. The National Hi-Tech Crimes Unit is now a division of Soca which previously operated independently. Soca's aims are to target drug trafficking, organised immmigration crime, private sector fraud and any other organised crime. The agency budget for 06/07 was stated publicly as £416m.

Dave - Soca, Serious organised crime agency. I applied for a job last week, cunts turned me down.
There are great soca artists coming out of ALL the Caribbean Islands like St. Vincent, Barbados, Grenada, St. Lucia, Antigua, Dominica, etc. All these Islands produce GREAT soca music but they are not given a lot of exposure so many of you probably think Soca is limited to only T&T and Barbados-which is not true at all.
St. Vincent especially has done very well for itself-with artists like Kevin Lyttle, Jamesy P, Beckett.
Grenada has the incomproble Ajamu, Sparrow (considered a T&T artist as well), Inspector, and some great new talent like Mr. Killa.
Barbados has Rupee & Alison Hinds among other artists.
T&T has too many to name-but Machel Montano,Destra and Shurwayne Winchester are some of my favorites from Trinidad.
Antigua has some very talented artist like Burning Flames, whom I am a big fan of as well.
