This report uses intelligence data from Greater Manchester Police to systematically understand local gangs, helping target police activities. The method identifies interrelations in gang-related, criminal, and drugs-related networks within the data, and demonstrates the importance of understanding the strong role of other social links within a network.
The report is accompanied by a practical ‘How to guide’ for police forces considering using this approach.
