The UNODC SHERLOC (Sharing Electronic Resources and Laws On Crime) knowledge management portal is an initiative to facilitate the dissemination of information regarding the implementation of the UN Convention against Transnational Organized Crime (UNTOC) and its three Protocols, for which UNODC is the guardian, and the international legal framework against terrorism.

The SHERLOC portal is currently host to six databases: the Case Law Database, the Database of Legislation, the Bibliographic Database, a Database on Treaties, a Database on Strategies and a Directory of National Competent Authorities designated to facilitate international cooperation. In addition, the portal also hosts a Legislative Guide on the implementation of UNTOC, available in all 6 UN Official languages.
