Operational cooperation between police forces in different countries has grown steadily and has been mostly influenced by a pragmatic desire to deal with common problems, especially at the serious and transnational end of the criminal spectrum. There has been a political will to establish a much larger framework, operating in and through structures such as Europol and Eurojust. However, there is no appetite among strategic police leaders to extend cooperation beyond immediate borders or shared targets, and particularly none at all to embrace pan-European operational policing. We surmise that nationalism and national politics plays a determining role in this attitude, and detect a degree of general resentment of the United States in its global attempts to come to grips with terrorism and drugs-smuggling.

Keywords:   bilateral, cooperation, Europol, pan European
