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.

There is a NW regional approach in place regarding the mapping of organised crime groups,in conjunction with the ROCU that is managed by the ROCTA arrangements. Prior to completion this requires an FLL review in respect of local effectiveness.

The NW region has implemented the ROCTA recommendations. Lancashire Constabulary are fully signed up to and supporting the NW ROCU approach and as such are compliant with this recommendation. I therefore request that this be filed as complete.
