The European Union (EU) Serious and Organised Crime Threat Assessment (SOCTA) is a forward-looking document that both describes and anticipates emerging threats from serious and organized crime. It is Europol’s flagship product providing information to Europe’s law enforcement community and decision makers. The SOCTA provides a solid intelligence picture that aids the setting of EU priorities for the collective effort of tackling serious and organized crime in the framework of the EU Policy Cycle for Serious and Organised Crime.
