Turn Back Crime

Some crimes don’t have to happen. Together we can prevent them.

Turn Back Crime is a global campaign that highlights the dangers of organized crime and its effect on our day-to-day lives.

Using a variety of media channels – including video, website and social networks – the campaign provides advice on how to stay safe and encourages the general public, businesses and governments to play a role in reducing the impact of crime.

Crimes are connected

It is clear that transnational organized crime networks are behind the trafficking of various commodities, such as illicit goods, fake medicines, drugs, arms and even people.

These, and other seemingly unconnected crimes – as varied as cybercrime, fraud, crimes against children and corruption in sport – are in fact interconnected, as profits from one area are used to fund another.

Organized crime affects every one of us

As well as affecting the global economy, organized crime puts individuals at risk.

Their health is endangered by poor quality counterfeit products; their financial safety is compromised by attempts to steal their personal data; and children face threats such as online grooming and sexual abuse.

The Turn Back Crime website outlines the practical steps you can take to protect yourself and your family.

These changes in behaviour can also help reduce the amount of money driven by crime syndicates into their illegal activities.

Working in partnership

Action is needed not only from consumers, but also from businesses and governments.

The Turn Back Crime campaign reaches out to companies and policy makers in a bid to form a united front against contemporary crime challenges, and to support the ongoing activities of the global law enforcement community.

By working together, we can strike at the crimes themselves and reduce the impact on public health and safety.

The campaign is supported by the INTERPOL Foundation for a Safer World.
