Crime Areas

Fighting crime on a number of fronts.

Organised crime often has an international dimension that requires an international response. Europol supports the Member States in preventing and investigating a wide range of crimes.

From economic crime to terrorism, cybercrime to child sexual exploitation and drug trafficking to the facilitation of illegal immigration, Europol is on the case.

The agency delivers tangible results, thanks in no small part to its cooperation with law enforcement and other agencies within and outside the EU.
