  • Protecting the freedom and rights of its citizens;
  • Ensuring law and order;
  • Preventing, detecting and investigating crime;
  • Regulating and controlling traffic;
  • Controlling migration and residence of foreigners;
  • Providing state border security and crossing control;

INTERPOL Skopje

The National Central Bureau (NCB) for the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia is made up of more than 10 staff and structured around the following crime areas:

  • Public safety and terrorism;
  • Organized crime;
  • Drugs and weapons;
  • Financial and high-tech crime,
  • Trafficking in human beings;
  • Stolen motor vehicles;
  • Fugitives.

To strengthen national security, INTERPOL Skopje has arranged for the Organized Crime Department (OCD) to have direct access to INTERPOL's range of criminal databases (the OCD comprises several units, including financial crime, violent crime, trafficking in human beings, drugs and weapons, forensics).  Access has also been granted to regional sections that deal with migration issues, and to national border crossing points.   There are plans to continue expanding access to INTERPOL databases to law enforcement units across the country.
