Transnational organized crime : a review of offense types and law enforcement response
Localized crime exists all over the world; however there are certain crimes that have effects globally. These crimes are committed by organizations with worldwide networks, posing a unique problem for law enforcement. Police agencies must coordinate their international efforts with many different nations that utilize disparate legal systems in order to suppress these criminal operations. The objective of this thesis is to provide information on some of the various topics related to the issue of transnational organized crime and law enforcement's response.
Literature on various areas of organized crime such as drug and human trafficking, money laundering, and corruption is presented to further understanding of these topics. Additionally, literature discussing responses to international organized crime will also be included. Two case studies are presented and analyzed to help illustrate the information found in the literature. As criminal organizations become more global, law enforcement has to respond accordingly. This thesis provides an amalgamation of scholarly research to present a broad overview of the issues related to this topic.
