ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the overlapping of the law enforcement bodies and military. It states that national security establishments are increasingly focused inward, struggling to contain gangs and criminal syndicates that are metastasizing into national security threats. It mentions that the growth of criminal activity in the world at large and in specific regions especially is producing a new kind of warfare, one that reflects the postmodern interconnected world.
