A Scottish Government-funded project has found that organised crime is part of everyday life in many communities. The study found diversification in criminal activity in territorially-defined communities but highlighted that the harmful impact of the illicit drug market is the primary area of concern. The final report provided a behind-the-scenes look at the broader community experiences of organised crime. The voices and perspectives of offenders in organised criminal networks were largely absent from the report as it relied on the interpretation of frontline practitioners.
