Introduction to InSight Crime 2.0

1 SEP 2012 BY INSIGHT CRIME EN

Welcome to InSight Crime 2.0. As you may have noticed, we have upgraded our site to improve your experience and understanding of organized crime in the Americas.

We have sought to make it easier for you to access the information you need, putting all the news, investigations and background information just one single click away.

Now you can immediately see and peruse our investigations, and the country, group and personality profiles. There is  also one-step access to specific country news and respective profiles.

Both our Special Series and one-off Investigations will be available on the front page and our new and improved Investigations page.

We have put profiles of the week's top News Makers at the bottom of the home page in a new section to give you all you need to know about the groups and personalities that are generating the news.

Our mission, of course, remains the same: providing the most thorough, critical and balanced look at organized crime in the Americas.

Thanks to Juan Pulgarin, Victor Hugo Arias, and Dean Zambrano and our whole team for their hard work on this project.

If you have comments or feedback on the site, please send an email to: info@insightcrime.org
