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.

Organised crime group mapping is carried out by the regional organised crime unit (part of EMSOU) to the required standard. This is evidenced in the PEEL effectiveness 2017 report for Northamptonshire.
