Abstract

This article develops a working typology of rural criminal types in a UK wide context. It considers strategies used by these diverse ideal-typologies of rural criminals to successfully evade the police intelligence apparatus. It demonstrates hidden links between illegal rural enterprise and local criminal networks whilst concentrating upon the intersection of traditional criminality and illegal entrepreneurship. This article explores the changing landscape of rural crime positing new entrepreneurial strategies for tackling rural criminality in its myriad forms.
