Fighting terrorism and transnational crime through effective border management.
In our increasingly globalized world, it is easier for people and goods to cross international borders than ever before. Criminals are exploiting this progress to cross borders more freely and commit serious crimes.
Effective border security is therefore an essential aspect of combating transnational crime.
At INTERPOL, we offer a range of tools and services which can help member countries enhance their border security procedures and integrate their border security efforts with those of their neighbours.
We coordinate operational activities, offer training opportunities and cultivate partnerships with international organizations in order to ensure the safety and security of all national borders.
INTERPOL Integrated Border Management Task Force
To centralize our border security efforts, we have created the INTERPOL Integrated Border Management Task Force.
Comprising representatives of the relevant INTERPOL departments, the task force serves as a central point of contact and coordination for international border security and management activities, bringing all efforts under the oversight of a single entity.
The task force leads and coordinates INTERPOL initiatives involving border security. It is responsible for:
- Planning and coordinating border security management policy;
- Enhancing the capacity of border security in member countries;
- Developing partnerships with international organization and the private sector;
- Allocating operational resources to border security initiatives.
