Law enforcement agency partners

As vital and respected partners in the fight again supply chain crime in the Europe, Middle East & Africa region, Law Enforcement Agencies can join TAPA EMEA free of charge.

TAPA works closely with Law Enforcement Agency partners across the EMEA region as well as engaging with INTERPOL and Europol. This collaboration includes cargo crime intelligence sharing on both a national and regional level with police forces which recognise how TAPA EMEA members use this information to prevent crimes from occurring. A growing number of LEAs see sharing incident information with TAPA EMEA as an effective way to disseminate useful intelligence to a large and growing community of loss prevention stakeholders. 

TAPA EMEA was the first industry Association to be invited to join Project CARGO, an EU-financed project led by the German State Office of Investigation of Saxony-Anhalt targeting mobile organised crime groups specialising in cargo theft. This initiative involved TAPA EMEA working alongside law enforcement investigators from Germany, France, Czech Republic, Sweden, the Netherlands, Denmark and Austria as well as specialists from Europol and Eurojust, the EU agency dealing with judicial co-operation in criminal matters among agencies of the Member States.

TAPA EMEA currently has over 100 LEA members from across the region and is proactively seeking more intelligence sharing partnerships with Law Enforcement Agencies in every country in EMEA to increase its members’ understanding of cargo crime trends in each market and to support their supply chain security programmes. 

All TAPA EMEA LEA members have 24/7 access to the Association’s searchable cargo crime intelligence database. This enables policing specialists to filter searches for cargo crimes over specific periods by:

  • Country  
  • Date of incident
  • Type of incident, i.e. Theft from Trailer
  • Type of M.O used, i.e. Deceptive Pick Up
  • Type of location, i.e. Destination Facility
  • Products stolen/targeted
  • Products Details
  • Loss value 
  • Incident description
  • Media report link
  • Coordinates of where a crime took place

As well as giving law enforcement members full access to all the benefits of TAPA EMEA membership, the Association has cargo crime incident intelligence sharing agreements with several policing agencies. This contributes to the cargo theft information TAPA EMEA now collects annually in more than 50 European, Middle Eastern ad African countries.

Made accessible to members via the TAPA EMEA Intelligence Service (TIS), this intelligence helps Manufacturers & Shippers and Law Enforcement Agencies understand when, where and how cargo criminals are operating, the modus operandi used in their attacks and the products targeted. This, in turn, enables the Association’s members to avoid cargo crime ‘hotspots’, and to take preventative measure to avoid becoming another victim of a cargo crime. 

TAPA EMEA can also produce special cargo crime reports for LEAs with share incident intelligence with the Association. 

As members of TAPA EMEA, LEA representatives can learn more the wide range of attacks on supply chains happening around the EMEA region and find out more about the supply chain security solutions available to companies to reduce cargo crime. They can also network directly with the Association’s other LEA members as well as with the rest of TAPA EMEA’s supply chain security professional community, receive regular news updates, and join the Association’s webinars and conferences to gather their own intelligence.      

LEA members also value the single Points of Contact within the supply chain industry which TAPA EMEA can help to facilitate.
