(Many signs of a crime receive punishment in advance)

In the modem world today it is almost impossible to find an area in which specific forms of organized criminal behavior are manifested and demonstrated. Having in mind the degree tn which it is dangerous for society, our interests is focused to the review of different definitions of organized crime, so that we could in a more extensive way understand basic specifics and describe its basic common characteristics. Without regard for some common characteristic, different criminal-legal qualifications are obvious. From that the need emerges to make some brief comparable-legal analyses of the incriminations in criminal laws of certain states. The analyses will help us determine a wide specter of divergent viewpoints in this field. Also it will show us what sorts of juridical-legal and operational- technical means are used in the fight against this very complex and socially dangerous occurrence.

In order to come to a relevant conclusion related to the question does some definitions describe the phenomena of organized crime, it is necessary to explain its structure that makes it different from conventional forms of offenses. The harrrfulness of this occurrence for the society as whole is globally observed as a harmful influence of a deviation in a complex system, and of course an urgent reaction is necessary so that the influence can be eliminated as fast as possible. By this we come to the key question in this paper and that is how to determine the social policy, its doctrine, goals and strategies in the present situation, with the goal of establishing operational-criminal, professional tactical-technical experienced and other safety hypothesis in opposing all forms of organized criminal. The content analyses were used in this document, as well as comparative and partially historical method in explaining some basic concepts.
