Pharmaceutical crime involves the manufacture, trade and distribution of fake, stolen or illicit medicines and medical devices. These products pose a major threat to public health as counterfeit medicines can be harmful or even fatal. At INTERPOL we are working to dismantle the international organized criminal networks behind this type of crime.
Financial crimes affect individuals, companies, organizations and even nations, and have a negative impact on the entire economic and social system. At INTERPOL, we run initiatives to combat crimes related to payment cards, money laundering, counterfeit currency and security documents, and fraud.
Crimes against children
Crimes against children represent a huge challenge for police worldwide and require specialized skills and increased resources. At INTERPOL, we encourage our member countries to make use of our specialized tools to help identify victims from photos and films. Other services help police to track offenders internationally.
Cybercrime is one of the fastest growing areas of crime, due to the speed, convenience and anonymity of modern technologies and the Internet. INTERPOL’s cybercrime programme works to identify emerging threats and to develop tools and services to enable police to respond on an international level.
Environmental crime is not restricted by borders, and can affect a nation’s economy, security and even its existence. At INTERPOL, we coordinate a global, cross-sector response to the issues, and lead operations to dismantle the criminal networks behind wildlife and pollution crimes.
