Joint investigation teams (JIT) are teams formed jointly by national investigative agencies to handle cross-border crime. Joint investigation teams coordinate the investigations and prosecutions conducted in parallel by several countries. The terms of operation of joint investigation teams are based on Europol's Model Agreement for Setting up a Joint Investigation Team, as appended to Council of Europe Resolution 2017/C 18/01.[1]

After the shootdown of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, a joint investigation team with representatives from Australia, Belgium, Malaysia, the Netherlands and Ukraine was formed.[2]
