Task Force on Organised Crime in the Baltic Sea Region

The Task Force on Organised Crime (TF-OC) in the Baltic Sea Region was established following a decision of the heads of government of the CBSS Member States at the 1st Baltic Sea States Summit in 1996 in Visby. The aim of the TF-OC is to strengthen member-state capacities to prevent and combat organised crime by facilitating close cooperation among member-state law enforcement agencies. The main fields of activity of the TF-OC are as follows: improved and increased exchange of information; joint concrete and operative measures; judicial cooperation; special surveys, training and other cooperation.
