Department of Justice (DoJ) Draft Organised Crime Strategy for Northern Ireland 2020-23

Closes 2 Oct 2020

Opened 10 Jul 2020


Department of Justice (DoJ) is consulting on a new multi-agency draft strategy to protect individuals, communities and businesses in Northern Ireland from organised crime.  This seeks to build on and enhance the considerable body of work and structures already in place to support multi-agency collaboration in response to organised criminality.

The draft strategy has been developed and informed through significant engagement with other partners across Government and law enforcement, and in particular, by close engagement with partner organisations represented on the Organised Crime Task Force (OCTF).  In its development, the Department has also been informed by intelligence and information provided by law enforcement partners and has taken account of ongoing work, initiatives and strategic approaches that have been put in place in neighbouring jurisdictions in the UK and Ireland, and internationally.


Why We Are Consulting

The purpose of this consultation is to invite views on the draft Strategy.  In addition to the law enforcement partners that have already been involved, the Department is also very interested in receiving views and comments from local councils in Northern Ireland, businesses and private sector organisations, faith groups, organisations within the voluntary and community sector, and individual members of the wider public.
