This chapter examines the shift of crime groups and the cultures that sustained them out of the old neighbourhood and into the suburbs. Having established in Chapter 4 the way in which variations in working-class criminal fraternities are impacted on by normative social and economic drivers that reside beyond the scope of criminal justice considerations, this chapter argues that tendencies associated with the organization of legitimate labour are reflected within crime networks, and involve the generation and nurturing of local interests, albeit interests that are located across a range of post-industrial locales.

Keywords:   British organized crime, crime groups, legitimate labour, suburbs, crime networks, local interests
