“Our objective is to catch those in charge of organised crime groups undermining their ability to operate.”

Working with partners we will:

  •  Support victims of human trafficking and modern slavery including sexual exploitation working closely with UK Border Agency (UKBA), National Crime Agency (NCA) and national and regional partners to bring perpetrators to justice.
  •  Channel funds seized from criminal groups back into policing priorities for local communities.
  •  Disrupt and prevent organised drug distribution through improved intelligence shared between the police, partners and local communities to limit the harm drugs cause.
  •  Limit the ability of illegal gangs to operate by encouraging local authorities and employers to work with landlords and private sector partners to ensure immigrant identification checks and controls by landlords are implemented in the right way.
  •  Use roads policing to target people and vehicles who cause harm to our communities, especially those who are involved in serious and organised crime, through automatic number plate recognition (ANPR), other intelligence gathering and disruption activities.
  •  Work with the Environment Agency and rural communities to tackle large scale industrial fly tipping committed by Organised Crime Groups.
  •  Work with businesses and individuals to help them protect themselves from cyber enabled crime such as online fraud.

So that crime does not pay and organised crime is disrupted.

1 Number of Organised Crime Group disruptions
2 Trafficking of drugs arrests
