"This final report was developed by Caliber Associates as part of a project for the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) to identify and provide guidance on the development of tools and strategies to help advance the capacities of state and local law enforcement to identify and respond to transnational crime. The findings provide state and local law enforcement with advice on sound operational practice derived from this research. Prior to this project, NIJ sponsored a national survey of law enforcement practitioners to examine the extent of the transnational crime problem from the perspective of state and local law enforcement, the local resources devoted to transnational crime, perceptions of resource needs, and the extent of cooperation among local, state, federal and foreign law enforcement organizations. Using the results of this survey and new research, this project has identified some 'next steps' to providing local and state law enforcement with tools to identify and respond to transnational crime."
