Get Safe Online – Safeguarding children

South West Police Regional Organised Crime Unit (ROCU)
The Regional Organised Crime Unit (ROCU) was established in September 2010 to identify, disrupt and . . . dismantle organised crime groups impacting on the South West of England. The unit brings additional specialist capability across the region through effective partnership and collaboration to make the area a place hostile to organised crime.
