When transnational organized crime merges with other threats like terrorism, national security and stability can be severely compromised.
— William Wechsler, CINTOC President
 
  Transnational Organized Crime   In today's global economy, criminals hide by operating across borders. They manage complex networks that move money, people, drugs, guns, counterfeit goods and wildlife. These activities are destroying lives and weakening countries.    CINTOC supports partners to pinpoint vulnerabilities along global criminal supply chains to have greater impact.

  Convergence    Transnational crime organizations rarely traffic just one illegal product. Often they smuggle drugs, people, timber, wildlife products and other "grey market" goods.    CINTOC targets the systems enabling criminals to smuggle multiple illegal commodities. By focusing on convergence points, we increase law enforcement impact.

  Corruption   Organized crime breeds corruption, exploiting weak governments by targeting low-paid officials and under-funded state institutions. In extreme cases, it decimates rule of law and produces devastating consequences for ordinary people.   CINTOC supports our partners in identifying and taking action against corrupt officials profiting from illegal activity.

  Illegal Mining    From South America to South Asia, criminals and insurgents profit off dangerous illegal mining that imperils people and the environment.   CINTOC supports partners to identify and target those firms benefitting from this illegal activity.

  Illegal Wildlife Trade   The illegal wildlife trade is putting some of the world’s most iconic species, including rhinos, tigers and elephants, at risk of extinction.      CINTOC is mapping the powerful crime syndicates that finance the global illegal wildlife trade.

  Environmental Degradation   Our planet is in peril. Profit-hungry criminals and corrupt state officials are driving unprecedented rates of deforestation and over-fishing.   CINTOC investigates the networks behind these crimes, and the companies profiting off the illegally sourced goods.
