To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps the Organised Crime Partnership Board (OCPB) has taken since its inception; what goals have been set by the Board in 2009 and 2010; and when the Ministerial Advisory Group sponsoring the OCPB’s work will be established. (273024)

The Organised Crime Partnership Board (OCPB) has developed a single programme of work aimed at strengthening the co-ordinated response to organised crime across the law enforcement and criminal justice community. The comprehensive programme of work, which has been endorsed by the National Policing Board, will increase collaboration across agencies to deliver the maximum impact on the threats from organised crime.

A Programme Board has been established to oversee delivery of 10 projects, reporting through the OCPB to the Ministerial Advisory Group. Executive and Working Group leads from the law enforcement agencies have been appointed for each of the 10 projects and work is ongoing to set out the detailed deliverables, interdependencies, time scales, milestones and risks.

The first meeting of the Organised Crime Ministerial Advisory Group was held on 18 March.
