This menu has been developed to assist anyone who is looking to disrupt a criminal, particularly those involved in serious and organised crime, at a local level and working with partners. It will help you identify the appropriate tactics and powers that are available to law enforcement and partner agencies to disrupt criminality.
It is designed to support a Problem Solving Approach to the disruption of criminals using a breadth of existing law enforcement and other agency tactics. The problem-solving approach encourages greater focus on understanding the cause of a problem so that tactics can be more effective and more efficient in the longer term.
The menu provides ideas to assist in forming a coherent, creative disruption plan, with a combination of different tactics from many different agencies. If specialist tactics are being utilised in disruption activities then this menu can be used in conjunction with them and is complementary to the NCA Disruption Manual.
