Last year the Police Executive Research Forum and U.S. Department of Justice published a report entitled “The Stop Snitching Phenomenon: Breaking the Code of Silence“. The report considers how the Stop Snitching trend has been growing over the last few years and how it has become a very real problem for almost half of the United States’ police departments. It is essential that police forces act to break down this climate of fear and intimidation otherwise the situation will only worsen.
In our response to the report – Tackling the Stop Snitching Phenomenon – we identify the some of the ways in which covert management software can help to alleviate some of the problems surrounding witness protection and internal corruption. By implementing ABM’s software alongside improved management processes, police departments will be aided in their battle against organised criminal gangs.
