Law enforcement often pursues illicit activity through a bottom-up approach, targeting low-level criminals whose crimes are easy to identify and prosecute.
This means there is no lasting, strategic impact.
At CINTOC, we support our partners to identify and take action against the high-level criminals, and to dismantle the corrupt systems that allow their criminal activity to flourish. We take a three-pronged approach:
We have adopted a systematic approach to convene various agencies, firms, and NGOs that are fighting a common threat. These roundtables build trust and a will to act between often-unlikely partners who learn to share data and pinpoint vulnerabilities in the criminal networks. CINTOC then produces analytic products that can inform law enforcement agencies and industry specific agents to take action against an identified network. The result is that criminal networks now have fewer places to hide in the global financial and transport systems.
CINTOC works with industries, intelligence services, policymakers, law enforcement agencies, and NGOs to focus their efforts on points along illicit supply chains where disruption will have profound and lasting impact. We work behind the scenes at the highest levels of government to advocate for law enforcement action, tighten regulations, and improve technology to track illicit goods.
We produce investigative products that fuse on-the-ground intelligence with quantitative and qualitative data. These products, which include civil complaints, network analyses, and investigative briefings, put law enforcement in the position to take direct action against criminal and corrupt networks. By directly supporting law enforcement, CINTOC raises the risk and cost for criminal networks and corrupt officials to do business.
