Crime Areas

Fighting crime on a number of fronts.

Organised crime often has an international dimension that requires an international response. Europol works to support the Member States to prevent and investigate 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.

It delivers tangible results, based in part on its cooperation with law enforcement and other agencies within and outside the EU. To find out more about the types of crime that Europol is fighting, and about the other work it is doing, click on the tiles below.
