BY INVITATION ONLY Serious and Organised Crime: The Threat to the UK and Our Strategic Response

Thursday, July 20, 2017 - 02:30 to 16:30
Workshop

Serious and Organised Crime is and always will be a fast-evolving threat. Serious and organised criminals continually seek to use new tactics, techniques and technology to identify means to exploit vulnerabilities and generate illicit profit. Our collective understanding of the nature of the threat to the UK has improved since the publication of the Serious and Organised Crime Strategy in 2013, although in some cases this has pointed to an underestimated level of resilience of organised crime networks, and to the breadth and sophistication of their activities.

As the government undertakes a review of the Serious and Organised Crime Strategy, this workshop aims to draw on research conducted over the last four years to identify trends in the evolving threat, where government and law-enforcement agencies should focus their efforts, and best practice in approaches to tackling serious and organised crime.
