Criminal street gangs and organised crime are an increasing global threat. The fight against gangs and criminal exploitation is not just a law enforcement problem, it is one that can only be effectively dealt with through partnership working by all professional agencies. This entry level course will teach you everything from what a gang is through to how they work and how they feed into organised crime. The topics have been delivered in classrooms and in webinars and now you can access it at a time that suits you. The course is delivered by Martyn Linton who has personally lived experience of membership of a low level street gang having got involved aged in his early teens. As things escalated he made the tough decision to leave that life behind. His honest belief is that had he not he would now be in jail or worse still dead. He went on to work in law enforcement. He is a commended Detective having investigated gang crime and he has taught gang and exploitation tactics to law enforcement professionals across the world. He has trained in the US and has patrolled with US gang enforcements unit.
