Hugo Brady is a Research Fellow on EU institutions and Justice and Home Affairs at the Centre for European Reform. He previously worked in the political division of the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs and as a research associate on the constitutional treaty at the Institute for European Affairs in Dublin. In this article he examines the role of the EU in combating organized crime and argues that the EU should not seek to centralise law enforcement cooperation in Europol and Eurojust, but rather that it should be the focal point for a new pan-European community of police officers. He makes a convincing case for a ‘European criminal intelligence model’—a non-state policing plan for coordinating investigations against organized crime within the EU using  the model of  intelligence-led policing.
