any society, and its prevention should be taken seriously.
Crime
prevention can be executed in various ways,
firstly
through a sustained honest presence in the community and
secondly
through international
cooperation
. A local presence by incorruptible law enforcement authorities may be costly,

Secondly
, due to the large-scale severity and the global impact that
crime
has in some areas of the world, global
cooperation
is critical. Operating in a different way would incur significant financial losses and render any expenditure futile.

Therefore

reduction can be attributed to a joint effort between countries. To conclude, illegal activities are a costly and dangerous fact in the present global economy;

, through large-scale government investment prevention is an attainable goal.
Also
, spreading the expense through international
cooperation
the resources invested can be significantly more effective in reducing criminals’ effectiveness abroad.
