Calling time on crime

by bbfuture 16. July 2009 11:38

A bold new approach to crime and policing is one of 12 steps we’re taking to build Britain’s future.

In Britain, we’ve got some sophisticated strategies for fighting crime, but we have to stay ahead of the game.

In Extending our reach: A comprehensive approach to tackling serious organised crime we’re looking at shutting down businesses like massage parlours that are fronts for crime, blocking mobile phone use in prisons and recovering the assets of all organised criminals under investigation.

Trafficking in drugs and people, fraud, and financial crime costs the UK around £30bn a year. If we’re really going to help honest British people, we’ve got to strengthen our response to the organised criminals who harm our society and our economy.

What other steps do YOU think we should be doing?
