Police to target state's most clever organised criminals
POLICE in NSW are trying a new tactic to target the state's most clever organised criminals.
One hundred officers with experience in various task-forces have been brought in to form the Organised Crime Squad, which will investigate criminal syndicates across the state.
Assistant Police Commissioner Mark Jenkins said the most successful organised criminals masked their activities behind legitimate business.
"We know that a number of professionals, with expertise in the legal, regulatory and financial fields, are recruited by organised criminals to help them facilitate money laundering and avoid the detection of law enforcement," Ass Com Jenkins said
"In addition to removing organised crime kingpins, we want to disrupt their entire networks and limit their capacity to make profits from the misery of others."
