Organized Crime, illegal activities conducted as a business by permanently organized groups. Organized-crime groups supply goods and services that are in most places illegal but for which there is a large demand, such as gambling, illicit drugs, pornography, and prostitution.

Most countries of the world have organized crime; the scope of this article is limited to the United States.
