Abstract: This paper studies of the types of training material which needs to be developed to order to help law enforcement fight crime more effectively in the context of international supply chains. The research is based on a survey of law enforcement officials and policy makers, concerned education and training matters. The results of this study highlight areas of supply chain security where the global law enforcement community may need new training material and information most urgently. Despite the fact that the relatively small and diverse sample size limits the validity and generalizability, the findings of this study help to design priorities, methods and target audiences for future law enforcement training programs. Over time, addressing these identified training needs makes the law enforcement community more able to prevent, detect and investigate supply chain crimes such as cargo theft, trafficking, and terrorism. The study also complements the limited body of empirical research on supply chain security and contributes to the theory of supply chain security by showing how law enforcement agencies perceive supply chain crime and the types of security solutions which they consider most useful for fighting it.
