North East Regional Special Operations Unit
Tait Walker LLP
North East Regional Special Operations Unit
The North East Regional Special Operations Unit (NERSOU) was established in October 2013 and is a collaboration between the three forces of Northumbria, Cleveland and Durham. All three Chief Constables and Police and Crime Commissioners signed a regional collaboration document which formalised the existing joint working relationship.
The unit creates additional specialist capacity through effective partnership working and collaboration to deliver an increased response to tackling serious and organised crime that transcends Force borders in the region.
A Detective Superintendent and a Detective Chief Inspector lead the unit which comprises of a number of highly specialised teams of officers and staff from the three Forces. They work with embedded partners from Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC), UK Border Force and the National Crime Agency (NCA) to make the region a place hostile to serious and organised crime.
NERSOU provides the additional capacity and resilience for the region, to use all forms of covert policing tactics against cross border and highly motivated organised criminals. NERSOU can and does provide expert support to the constituent forces as and when required in a number of specialist areas.
NERSOU is one of 10 ROCUs (Regional Organised Crime Units) across England and Wales.
The mission of the unit is simple – To protect the communities of Cleveland, Durham and Northumbria from Serious and Organised Crime.
The Home Office Serious and Organised Crime Strategy is based upon the following principles:
- Pursue – prosecuting and disrupting people engaged in serious and organised criminality.
- Prevent – preventing people from engaging in serious and organised criminality.
- Protect – increasing protection against organised crime.
- Prepare – reducing the impact of serious and organised crime where it takes place.
NERSOU’s role is critical to the ‘Pursue’ element of the regional response.
It places emphasis on preventing, prosecuting and disrupting serious and organised crime ensuring a co-ordinated national approach across Government, law-enforcement, security and intelligence agencies.
