    Making Europe Safer

    Making Europe Safer

    Most episodes of this podcast talk about cases. We’ve spoken about taking down terrorist propaganda, thwarting cybercrime operations, intercepting ton after ton of drug shipments, and all kinds of other high-stakes, global, police operations.

    But behind all these cases is weeks and months of analysis, research, and innovation. At Europol HQ, there are entire departments dedicated solely to finding trends and innovations that will make investigations more effective. This is one of Europol’s core services to police in the EU Member States – providing a platform for innovation, technological research, and the sharing of methods and data.

    In this episode, we will look at some of the innovations that have been happening at Europol in recent years, and how these have translated into real, operational results.

    Jamming The Printers

    Jamming The Printers

    Technology is changing the way terrorists think and how they plan their attacks. One emerging threat is the world of 3D-printed weapons. 3D-printed weapons are fully-functioning firearms, made using 3D-printing technology that is available to civilians and can be used at home.
    In this episode of The Europol Podcast, we shed light on how terrorists are exploiting this technology, and what Europol and our partners are doing to keep Europe safe.

    Fighting International Fugitives

    Fighting International Fugitives

    High-risk individual criminals pose some of the biggest threats to Europe’s security. Three leaders of the Kinahan Cartel, a dangerous transnational criminal organisation, were designated as High Value Targets by Europol, with the United States Department of State putting out a reward for their arrest.

    In this episode of The Europol Podcast, Europol and the An Garda Síochána will give you a behind-the-scenes look at how we take action against international fugitives, in this case the Kinahan Cartel.

    Targeting Dark Finances

    Targeting Dark Finances

    Economic and financial crime is becoming more complex. Law enforcement are responding in kind by investing in asset recovery; the practice of finding and seizing cash and assets gained through criminal activities.

    In this instalment of The Europol Podcast, we go behind a case that saw the French Gendarmerie team up with Europol in a massive international fraud case.

    Sinking Drug Shipments

    Sinking Drug Shipments

    Organised crime networks are always adapting their methods, trying to stay one step ahead of law enforcement. This is especially true for their illegal shipments; drugs, counterfeits and other illicit goods are constantly being uncovered and intercepted by law enforcement in unexpected places. One of the key avenues criminals exploit in their logistics is maritime ports.



    Join law enforcement, academics and Europol analysts for this episode of The Europol Podcast, where we look at Europe’s ports and how they are fighting organised crime.

    Halting People Smugglers

    Halting People Smugglers

    In 2016, at the height of the European Migrant Crisis, a terrible tragedy struck when reckless criminal actions cost 71 innocent lives. When authorities found the victims, police sprang into action to find those responsible and bring them to justice.
    In this episode of The Europol Podcast, Europol and authorities from Hungary and Austria tell the story of the Burgenland Corpses Discovery, one of Europe’s most tragic migrant smuggling cases.
