Based on Gangs, Drugs and (Dis)Organised Crime by Robert McLean, this briefing covers contemporary British gang activity at all levels with an emphasis on involvement in organised crime, and in particular the illegal supply of drugs.

Policy recommendations include addressing the root causes of crime, adopting a strategy of support for members rather than gang intervention and monitoring key members in prisons.
