Two European Parliament factsheets setting out basic information on police cooperation and judicial cooperation in criminal matters in the EU: legal basis; objectives; achievements; and the role of the European Parliament.

Police Cooperation (pdf):

"The main instrument for police cooperation is the European Police Office (Europol), whichis a central plank of the broader European internal security architecture. Cooperation and policies are still developing, with attention focused on countering pan-EU threats and crime more effectively and, particularly for the European Parliament, doing so in compliance with fundamental rights and data protection rules."

And: Judicial cooperation in criminal matters (pdf):

"Judicial cooperation in criminal matters is based on the principle of mutual recognition ofjudgments and judicial decisions, and includes measures to approximate the laws of theMember States in several areas. The Treaty of Lisbon has provided a stronger basis for thedevelopment of a criminal justice area, while also stipulating new powers for the European Parliament."
