The Policing of Vietnamese Organized Crime within the UK

Show Summary Details


This article outlines the impact of Vietnamese organized crime on the UK. It suggests that conventional policing approaches to the problem are flawed and instead recommends a strategy of community engagement based on an understanding of the genealogy of the Vietnamese community. The evidence has been gathered from two separate research projects carried out in 2007 and 2008, which both involved interviews within the illegal and legal community in the UK and interviews with the relevant law enforcement personnel in the UK and in Vietnam.
