  •  White Post Lane, London, E9
Suitable for: Adults
Neil Woods is a former police officer who over 14 years worked undercover to infiltrate some of the most dangerous Organised Crime Groups in the U.K. He is an international spo... More Info »
This Funzing Experience:
In this talk Neil will explain the reality of undercover policing and the inevitable connection between covert policing and corruption.

Is corruption as wide reaching as Line of Duty suggests? Should we be worried?

Neil will discuss whether the corruption of our police and criminal justice system is an inevitable result of drug policy.

Police are really good at catching drugs dealers but is the unintended consequence the growing monopolies of Organised Crime?

This seems to be reflected around the world. From Mexico to West Africa, the stability of whole governments is under attack by the growing power of international cartels. And here in the UK it can only go one way, until we change policy direction.

Drawing on examples from his two books, Neil is guaranteed to shock with the extent of systemic corruption that he can reveal.

Venue: White Post

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.
