Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to examine the use of EU-wide databases as a means of combating organised crime.
Design/methodology/approach – The paper looks at three specific examples of proposed databases: networking national criminal records; the creation of a European criminal record; and a database for investigations and prosecutions.
Findings – The paper concludes that, while such databases are feasible and useful tools in combating organised crime, until there is progress in harmonising criminal law and procedure they will be resisted by Member States.
Practical implications – EU-wide databases are feasible and can assist in combating organised crime.
Originality/value – The paper has value for researchers, practitioners and policymakers.
