  1. Understanding organised crime
  2. Understanding the new approach to fighting crime


The primary tenet of this document is that, when especially operating in a resource-constrained environment, one needs to embark on new and novel ways to control organised crime. These ways include analysing criminal targets as systems, and to then try and upset these systems' centres of gravity.

Systems thinking is the antidote to a sense of helpnesness because of complexity. It is concerned with a shift of mind from seeing the parts to seeing the whole. It involves a new paradigm when it comes to analysing organised criminal groups.

This is a work in progress. We believe it should contribute to the body of crime control doctrine. Doctrine equates to best practice, and rests on three pillars-- 1. experience, 2. theory, and 3. technology. This is a contribution to the evolutionary development of theory in crime fighting. It states that criminal target systems are composed of a number of rings, or then, centres of gravity, that have to be identified and disrupted from the inside out to achieve maximum impact on the criminal system.

To be successful in achieving this rests on a number of key capabilities -- proper strategising and planning, good intelligence, and ensuring that the principle of jointness is optimised within the private public partnership.
