Causes of concern

HMIC found that the current approach to mapping organised crime groups is applied by forces in an unacceptably inconsistent way, giving an incomplete and inaccurate picture of the national threat. Given the severity and nature of organised crime, a more coherent and consistent approach is critical.

Recommendation 5

• Immediately, the responsibility for mapping organised crime groups should be transferred from individual police forces to regional organised crime units, and this transfer should be completed no later than September 2017.

The constabulary has introduced the SOCTA process in line with other NW regional forces and TITAN. Initial OCG scoring is undertaken at force level. Governance of the process is at ROCU level. Mapping is the responsibility of the ROCU. This approach was tested during the Autumn Effectiveness inspection in 2017 and found to be in order. I therefore request that this be finalised as complete
