Serious and Organised Crime

Serious & organised crime is not unique to Cheshire, but a problem across the UK, impacting our economy, our communities, and even our children. Tackling it is everyone’s business.

In Cheshire our story is a little different to our neighbours in the larger, more metropolitan areas. We don’t just focus on the crime itself – we’re concerned with those who are vulnerable too. We know that in Cheshire, children are being targeted and groomed to commit crime on behalf of organised crime groups. We know that drug addicts are being taken advantage of, with criminals taking over their homes and their lives to carry out their illegal activity. And we know how hard it is for those who are vulnerable to break the cycle and get their lives back

That’s why serious and organised crime is everyone’s business, and this is demonstrated by our work with a range of organisations to not just disrupt and dismantle the crime groups, but ensure that there is support for victims too.

You may be worried about friends or loved ones, or you may be worried about something going on in your community and have information that can help us. Please use this section of our website to learn more about the issue, what we’re doing about it, and how you can help us.
