WikiProject Organized crime


This WikiProject aims to maintain and improve organized crime-related articles, expand articles, create new articles, and engage in collaborations.

  • Organized crime, mafia and syndicates – groups, members and associates (particularly of the 20th century)
  • Gangs and street gangs (from the early 19th century to present)
  • Criminal societies and similar organizations
Excluded for now


Biographies and other subjects should be formatted and organized per Wikipedia's Manual of Style.
