Serious and Organised Crime Strategy

This series brings together documents relating to the Serious and Organised Crime Strategy.

We define serious and organised crime as individuals planning, co-ordinating and committing serious offences, whether individually, in groups and/or as part of transnational networks.

The main categories of serious offences covered are:

  • child sexual exploitation and abuse
  • illegal drugs
  • illegal firearms
  • fraud
  • money laundering and other economic crime
  • bribery and corruption
  • organised immigration crime
  • modern slavery and human trafficking
  • cyber crime

This strategy sets out how we will mobilise the full force of the state, aligning our collective efforts to target and disrupt serious and organised criminals.

The Home Office has also published new research that improves our understanding about serious and organised crime in the UK.
