Organised crime

There was an article in yesterday's DomPost about gangs and the escalation of organised crime and links to overseas organisations. Police Association president Greg O'Connor says that it is "inevitable" that gangs will infiltrate government departments, local bodies and even the police eventually. Their spheres of influence and intimidation are widening. A couple of years back I asked a friend in the force for almost thirty years why gangs were less visible on the streets and on bikes. This was after I saw a group pulled up in an expensive late model car. He said more or less what Greg confirms. That having moved into organised crime, and having more at stake, they keep a lower profile.
