London's history of Crime has held peoples fascination for decades as it is an intriguing, gritty, sometimes gruesome and a very captivating subject. If you love the often publicised and romanticised history behind London's underworld, or if you just want to find a place where you can find London crime books, London based fiction, or take a browse through some excellent London based films, then you need to go no further than us.
BUT.. Our intention is not to glamourise crime, as stated at the top of the page, "Crime belongs in history and Fiction", this site is not about the London crime news of today, other news sites can do that! although we are behind some great organisations that are aiming to reduce knife crime in the capital and beyond. Crime can have a devastating affect on it's victim's and ruins the lives of families of both the victim's and the criminals, often leaving mental health issues in everyone involved (not something to be proud of).

For years the UK and numerous other countries has had to deal with austerity measures brought in by governments which inevitably has been passed onto local councils and authorities. This has meant a decrease in public funding for the youth of today. In essence this has created a lack of public services to enable children to reach their full potential and resulted in gang warfare, knife crime and gun crime at an ever evolving rate thus destroying communities at the core. The aim at the Kofficial Foundation is to revive and help set up programs within the local communities and help gyms to enable these youngsters to come off the streets to learn discipline, self-defence and nutrition. To be part of a family, teach them respect and hopefully make a change and inevitably produce future generations of world champions.
