Transnational organized crime

Other Names:
Organized transborder criminality
International crime rings

Transnational organized crime (TOC) is organized crime coordinated across national borders, involving groups or networks of individuals working in more than one country to plan and execute illegal business ventures. In order to achieve their goals, these criminal groups use systematic violence and corruption. The most commonly seen transnational organized crimes are money laundering; human smuggling; cyber crime; and trafficking of humans, drugs, weapons, kidnapping, people smuggling, endangered species, body parts, or nuclear material.

It was reported in 2001 that the smuggling of migrants is so lucrative in Canada that rival criminal gangs are setting aside their differences to share safe houses, illegal travel documents and means of spiriting people into the country.
