Investigating Cross-Border Crimes: Transatlantic Cooperation

5 February 2013 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Chatham House, London


Keith Bristow, Director, National Crime Agency, UK
John Morton, Director, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement
Chair: William Hughes CBE QPM, Director General, Serious Organised Crime Agency (2006-10) 



As crime has gone global, national law enforcement agencies are increasingly obliged to cooperate in order to bring criminals to justice. The UK's newly formed National Crime Agency and US Immigration and Customs Enforcement are now stepping up US-UK law enforcement cooperation to target transnational crime. With a particular focus on child exploitation and intellectual property theft, the speakers will discuss the strategies being adopted by their respective agencies to improve the investigation of cross-border crime and transatlantic enforcement efforts.
