Today, international law enforcement organizations are grappling with creating pathways to share necessary information to cope with the rise in transnational crimes. While it is important to recognize that sharing information crosses over geographical, cultural, and value-based differences, it is even more important to understand that this sharing can only happen if it includes technology and tech support for both gathering and disseminating the information. A review of recent research and current information-sharing protocols from international, national, and regional law enforcement agencies provides a list of barriers (legal, technical, political, organizational, and managerial), but emphasizes the advantages of creating a system for sharing information and technology between the developed and developing countries.
