Boosting border security
To strengthen national security and prevent criminal activity in Ukraine, INTERPOL Kiev arranged for frontline police officers across the country to have access to INTERPOL’s databases. With the support of an INTERPOL project funded by the European Union, officers across the country now have hands-on access to INTERPOL databases. With this capacity, Ukraine police officers across the country can quickly determine if a person is a potential threat to national security.
INTERPOL training centre
In collaboration with the General Secretariat, in 2008 INTERPOL Kiev set up a training centre for INTERPOL's secure police communications system at the Kiev National University of Internal Affairs. This training centre provides a venue for Ukrainian police to continually improve their international policing skills and keep abreast of new tools and services provided by the INTERPOL General Secretariat.
