Serious organised crime (SOC) has had a lot of attention in the media recently, and is one of our key solution areas. It’s been established by experts several times that SOC cannot be tackled by one agency alone, which is where pam’s core strengths come in to play. As some of you will know from our most recent blog post featuring Merseyside Police, we’re doing a lot of work in SOC with police forces, and we’ll soon be announcing an exciting initiative in joining up the government agencies involved.
Therefore we were delighted to see that the police will be given tougher powers to take action against those involved in organised crime. A new serious crime bill mentioned in the Queen’s speech yesterday will create the “participation in an organised crime group” offence, enabling officers to hold these associates of gangs fully accountable for their actions.
Coincidentally, we’re at the Charter Systems Senior Officer Briefing related to SOC today and tomorrow with our partners, Charter Systems with its Covert intelligence and insight and pam with its secure information sharing and joint operations management make it an exciting partnership. Our Chief Executive Mark Darby will be addressing Directors of Intelligence and Senior Authorising Officers about how they can enhance their partner working and organisational delivery capability. Together, we represent 75% of the police forces in England and Wales, to learn more about our relationship with Charter Systems, see our recent press release about our strategic alliance. Keep your eyes peeled for the upcoming announcement on our new initiative, but in the mean time if you’d like to find out more about how pam enables joined up working on serious and organised crime, get in touch.
