Abstract

Our research will assess changes and continuities in perpetrator behaviour resulting from social distancing, showing whether criminal business models are likely to change due to a changing risk and/or profitability profile. This project will detail the impact of social distancing measures on offenders' ability to groom, methods for mobilising 'county lines' operations, and the prevention, detection and safeguarding abilities of police and other organisations. It will use a single case-study design.
