Tackling serious and organised crime by an administrative approach
It is recognised that organised crime does not respect regional, national or international boundaries and because of its nature and scale it is more than any one agency or even group of nations can tackle alone. Criminal justice interventions alone will never be enough.
In response a Network has been formed within the EU in the Council Conclusion of 5 November 2010. Since then ENAA has evolved into a Network of National Contact Points who act as a gateway to law enforcement agencies, government departments, administrative bodies and academia in their respective countries. In particular, those teams, units and departments which are regularly using administrative powers or non-traditional ways of working on a practical level, as part of a multidisciplinary approach to prevent and disrupt organised crime.
