The international expert conference, which is open to members of international law enforcement agencies, is taking place from 27 until 29 November 2017 at Europol’s headquarters in The Hague and brings together over 300 police and judicial experts from 38 countries, including all EU countries. Organised property crime, in particular home burglary, is a criminal offence that all European Union security agencies are vigorously fighting with numerous actions. A large proportion of these offences are committed by mobile organised crime groups (MOCGs) characterised by a high degree of flexibility and mobility. The aim of this conference is to effectively combat the transgressive offender groups in the field of burglary by improving cross-border structures. The intensive, transnational and interdisciplinary work of conference participants aims to identify similarities and problem areas in the fight against crime, thereby developing specific solutions.
Close national and international cooperation makes it possible to identify facts and groups of perpetrators.
