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 introduction of the Regional Organised Crime Threat Assessment (ROCTA) team by ERSOU now deals with the mapping of organised crime groups. This provides the consistency required and removes the responsibility from forces. Representatives from ROCTA now attend the monthly Suffolk and Norfolk Joint Organised Crime Management Assessment meeting to discuss mapping of Organised Crime Groups.
