- How to enhance European cooperation and law enforcement against transnational criminal networks, dealing with drugs and weapons, trafficking humans and toxic waste? There is many things that could be done to help solve such problems, but it will be really hard to completely solve it. First of all we should have a common database in all of Europe having criminal’s identity and all of that so that a criminal could not just escape to another country to be safe. Also the police should be able to arrest people in the nearest countries because as it is right now, it is not clear if a police officer can follow you if you try to escape to another country. So that means that if you run away to another country and that you are not stopped at the border and that the foreign police does not want to search for you, you are basically safe. It makes organized crime a bit easier in my opinion. Also it might be needed to rethink some of the laws in every european countries because some of the punishment for certain crimes just do not make sense. We might want to make them a bit harsher to kinda scare people that would maybe take the risk with the actual punishment but wouldn’t with the new harsher one. About toxic waste, hopefully the COP is gonna take care of those problems otherwise we might just have to review European legislation. To stop human trafficking maybe we could use the “dark net” to find the biggest “seller” by hiring really good hacker or something of such, because it is where most of the sales are made so maybe we could just use that against trafficking.

We need a few things: 1) A cross-national criminal database.... 2) common laws on organised crime... 3) Forming a Common European police force aimed at organised and cross-national crime (i.e. EuroPol)... 4) Making Frontex into a better funded and more effective European border GUARD and management organisation wit more powers and manpower... 5) Formation of a European anti Terrorism organisation... 6) Understanding that while man criminals are “correctable”, there are many who aren’t. A thief can be helped i turn their life around, but a person with 20 years in an organised criminal gang probably cannot. And their punishment shouldn’t be the same. We need separate facilities, correctional to help the criminals and lock-away facilities to protect the public.
