  • Nowadays safety hazards cover bigger and bigger scale and have more difficult level of complexity. Manifestations of organized crime, cyber-crime, drug crime, money laundering, human trafficking and other security threats have got a long cross-border nature. The role and capacity of Interpol and the European Police Office (Europol) is strengthened in the fight against serious and organized crime, mechanisms provided in the Schengen Convention are developed; series of programs that focus on global crime threat prevention have been developed in the European Union. Tools for information sharing are developed. These tools can be also used in the joint investigations to facilitate the operations. The International Criminal Police Organization Interpol General Secretariat maintains a database and provides a variety of electronic services that successfully help to combat the widest range of crimes. Legal instruments of the European Union are created that promote operational cooperation between Member States, such as the establishment of joint investigation teams, joint operations and close cooperation to ensure the security of international events. In addition to a number of compensatory mechanisms for border controls, the Schengen Information System (hereinafter - SIS) was implemented in Latvia. Its ideology is a direct and wide accessibility to the laws officials: both those who work on the border and those who take control of people and objects within countries. SIS is already used by more than 2 million users. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
