Summary/Abstract: Typologies are important in providing greater detail to what is meant by the concept of transnational organized crime. It is clear from the overview of the groups the wide variety ofstructures, activities and potential outcomes that are encompassed by the concept. The identification of different types provides more detail in this respect providing a clear picture of what is entailed by the phenomenon of transnational organized crime. The identification of a series of typologies has important policy implications for law enforcement agencies. Different strategies of law enforcement must be used in confronting different types of organized crime groups. Identification of typologies may provide a useful tool for law enforcement professionals.
