Know your enemy. Understanding the history of criminal organizations is vital to counter “new threats”. Criminal organisations need to be followed step by step through time, in order to dismantle their structures. Lack of proper knowledge and consciousness of one harm the security of all. Therefore, some practices need to be modified. Sectorial specialisation in investigation is an excellent way to fail to grasp the sense of any criminal organisation. Competence of investigating magistrates limited to their territorial district is one of the main instruments for members of serious organised crime to escape prosecution. Widespread databases become dangerous instruments when organised crime remains out of control. Modifying such practices harming security does not damage democracy. Proper legislation and practices defend citizens without harming the democratic asset of NATO Member Countries.
