Seminar:Organised crime impacts on local business.
Speakers: Professor Nick Tilley (Nottingham Trent University) and Matt Hopkins (Matrix Knowledge Group). This is a joint SCCJR / SIPR event.
The speakers will report on a Home Office-funded study looking at the impact of organised crime on local businesses in three carefully chosen case-study areas (Green Lanes, Lovzells, and Bullwell in Nottingham), including: issues around survey methodology; issues around business crime and how it shades into potentially more serious crime, and the less than straightforward relationship between local legitimate entrepreneurs and rather less legitimate ones; issues around police intelligence, community intelligence and how the two can be related to each other and to survey data.
