Criminal Enterprises

Street Gangs

A group of persons, usually youths, who share a common identity and who generally engage in criminal behavior. In contrast to the criminal behavior of other youths, the activities of gangs are characterized by some level of organization and continuity over time. There is no consensus on the exact definition of a gang, however, and scholars have debated whether the definition should expressly include involvement in crime. Some gangs, but not all, have strong leadership, formalized rules, and extensive use of common identifying symbols. Many gangs associate themselves with a particular geographic area or type of crime, and some use graffiti as a form of nonverbal communication.

Mobs

By common parlance and practice, a mob is a mixture between a street gang and a mafia. Not as highly organized as a mafia but not as carefree and nonchalant about certain aspects as street gangs. In essence, they are more like former street gangs who try to fill the mafia modus operandi. They are rarely concerned about being as efficient and discreet as mafias, and disregard the nuances of modern street gang culture. They are a loose confederation of like-minded (and most times ethnically similar) criminals who band together in the pursuit of making money


Mafias

Mafias are by nature are ofter very large, extremely organized, and deadly secretive. They operate under most visibility and if successful become influential behind the scenes, in a manner of of affluential legitimate businesses. They attempt to pull the string of modern institutions, and if good at what they do, come to act akin to "shadow government for their locality" in a sense.

Others

Sometimes a faction does not fit the common mold of any above classification. For example, a secret society whom engages in some illegal activities. Or perhaps a political organizations that may dabble in certain extrajudicial practices. Pretty much anything that doesn't fit into the above three archetypes

Legitimate Organizations


Government Agencies and Sectors
