Today's war on crime has reached a new level of complexity. Criminal networks are using more sophisticated methods to commit and cover up their crimes. It is not unusual for these networks to be global, and combatting this global scourge requires workers with technical skill, an understanding of criminal psychology, solid communication skills and superior education.
