Britain’s fight against organised crime needs an FBI approach, says ex-police chief

The UK’s fight against serious and organised crime is “severely constrained” and needs extra funding, a Government review has found.

The gangs are said to be costing Britain up to £37 billion a year.

A review by Sir Craig Mackey – a former Metropolitan Police Deputy Commissioner – said the battle against organised gangs was hampered by the lack of collaboration between forces.


He said the ways and methods to tackle gangs was not working at its “full potential”.

The gangs were now running in hi-tech global world and the police had failed to adapt to the unfamiliar environment.

Britain’s fight against gangs is led by the National Crime Agency.

Sir Craig said it should be more like the American FBI to direct and lead the UK’s police forces and agencies.
