Investigation Services Available in the EU

The European Union (EU) has brought about enormous economic changes to the included nations as well as those neighboring the community. As financial systems have become more connected, so too have information systems and the ability to investigate persons and firms across national European borders.

Increasing transparency in legal systems is a requirement to membership in the EU, and more transparency means less corruption and easier access to data and records. INTERPOL(International Criminal Police Organization) is the largest international police organization, with 186 member countries. The group facilitates cross-border police cooperation, and supports and assists all organizations, authorities and services whose mission is to prevent international crime. In recent years, such international groups become increasingly successful in their investigations as the European community continues to merge. Private investigators have also become more capable.

Depending on the exact assistance required, there are many options available for consumers or citizens seeking investigative services. One should first contact their local jurisdiction and police, whether in London, Moscow or Bucharest. If the crime or investigation requires international assistance within the EU or Eastern Europe, INTERPOL may be of assistance. For Europe background checks, be sure to use a firm with international scope such as Wymoo International or Kroll in London.

The information flow between the EU is expected to continue to increase, and with this trend, investigations should continue to benefit. Private investigation firms, background check services and law enforcement should all benefit. As history has proven, however, crime too will evolve and the challenge goes on.

All the Best,
