    I do not like criticizing the UK Serious Fraud Office. Its staff are exceptionally committed, and it has a very tough mandate. But my experience of building a global consultancy over 20 years is that hard messages sometimes need to be given, and a failure to deliver the message is demonstrative of personal as well as organizational failure and risks greater harm.

    Serious and organised crime is exploiting the changing circumstances during the pandemic. From the onset of this crisis, Europol monitored these developments to help Member States understand and tackle this emerging phenomena. The full impact of the pandemic – not only on crime but also more widely on society and the economy – is not yet apparent. However, law enforcement should be prepared to be able to respond to the warning signals as the world deals with the fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic. Now more than ever, international policing needs to work with the increased connectivity both in the physical and virtual worlds. This crisis again proves that exchanging criminal information is essential to fighting crime within the law enforcement community. Europol, as the criminal information hub for all law enforcement organisations, will continue to play its part.
