An Amber Weather Warning has been issued across Sefton with flooding and disruption likely. Head to our Flooding page for guidance.


Serious Organised Crime & Serious Acquisitive Crime

Serious and Organised Crime (SOC) presents a significant national threat due to links to drug trafficking, fraud, firearms offences, and other forms of serious violence. The changing nature of the threat posed by Serious and Organised Crime in Sefton and the links to child exploitation (CE) has focussed partnership attention in recent years on the relationship between child exploitation and serious organised crime in the Borough.

Serious Acquisitive Crime (SAC) presents a more local threat with both domestic and commercial burglary, robbery, theft of and from motor vehicles all linked to the supply of drugs and is intrinsically linked to SOC. It has an equally harmful impact to victims and our communities.
