  Annotation: This report examines alternative approaches to combating transnational crime.
Abstract: Research findings of this report concern assisting law enforcement through non-traditional agencies and approaches and enhancing traditional law enforcement approaches through multi-jurisdictional and multi-sectoral cooperation. Principals of innovative and effective transnational and organized crime enforcement include: (1) inter-agency cooperation and coordination; (2) a strategic approach, including a strong intelligence function; (3) use of different targeting focuses; (4) complementing criminal enforcement with regulatory, civil, and administrative sanctions; (5) combining prevention, deterrence , and enforcement; (6) providing full resourcing; and (7) pursuing cost-effective approaches. The report recommends, among other actions, continued emphasis on a national organized crime strategy; increased emphasis on a coordinated, integrated approach; an increased role for regulatory bodies; increased emphasis on proactive, preventive approaches; increased emphasis on corruption issues; an overseas presence; and varied targeting.
