Just like the weather and our environment, criminals don’t just stop magically at our borders.
ALDE MEP Sonia Alfano (Italia dei Valori, Italy), rapporteur for the European Parliament on “Organized crime in the European Union” said: “Organized crime has been underestimated for far too long. We are comforted by an increasing awareness of the necessity of a common European strategy, in spite of political and territorial borders and experiences.”
The European Union acts as one of the ways in which we can work together to tackle cross border crime, especially where it is organised and EuroPol is one of the key tools for this.
