Criminal networks operate across numerous jurisdictions to evade justice and the responsibility for the prosecution of a crime.

Crime and Terrorism

Crime and Terrorism

Criminal networks that operate across numerous jurisdictions are often able to evade efforts to bring them to justice by complicating the investigative process and responsibility for the prosecution of a crime.

In countries with a high corruption-index, the chances of successful prosecution are marginal, particularly where the crime or claim involves politically-exposed persons (PEPs), or where the crime has occurred across borders.

Through focusing on establishing a cooperative environment between law enforcement, judicial services and reform, JTACC has been successful in providing an effective remedy to the threat of transnational organized crime.

Criminal Organizations and Terrorist Networks

We have observed the composite threat-actor as a criminal enterprise and source of financing in Afghanistan and Africa. The functional similarities of these entities are striking in their similarity, using primary resources, whether gold or narcotics, to fund the expansion and operation of their organizations, undermine the authority of the state through corruption, and foster instability.

To operate and exert influence, these organizations must:

  • Generate revenue for the organization
  • Distribute revenue throughout the international organization
  • Recruit domestically and internationally
  • Maintain leadership over the operational direction of cells / gangs
  • Evade detection by law enforcement
