Annotation. The purpose of the study is to study and evaluate the content of the Europol police website from the standpoint of expanding knowledge and improving competencies about EU criminal zones, as well as using information from the site for educational purposes. All sections of the site have been investigated: 1. About Europol. 2.Operations, services and innovations. 3.Criminal zones. 4. Partners and cooperation. 5.Career and procurement. 6. Mass media and the press. 7. Publications and events. The contents of the listed sections are briefly disclosed. Conclusions. The site contains an impressive list of criminal zones and their location in the EU, which, with varying degrees of intensity, “seep” into the territory of Russia. The structure of Europol’s analytical reports and the presentation of materials in them contribute to the formation of competent and systematic analytical thinking. The dynamics of crime growth suggests that spiritual and moral values in the EU countries are secondary to consumer values. Europol reports show a high level of danger from an ill-conceived migration policy. Migrants create closed ethnic clans for their survival and earn their living by criminal activity (especially drugs), while, due to high and unregulated fertility, they gradually displace the indigenous population from their traditional areas of residence. The risks from criminal activity should be considered in almost all initial qualification work (WRC).
