INTERPOL Colombo

The INTERPOL National Central Bureau (NCB) for Sri Lanka is part of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID).  The Deputy Inspector General of Police in charge of the CID is also the Head of INTERPOL Colombo.

The Sri Lanka NCB places great emphasis on the importance of providing swift and efficient assistance to the investigations of its partner NCBs across the world, particularly with regard to the search for fugitives.  INTERPOL Colombo staff can conduct investigations themselves and this helps to accelerate response times and boosts cooperation with partner countries.
