At INTERPOL, we work to enable police and other law enforcement agencies to cooperate on a global basis.

We offer a number of technical tools to help the global law enforcement community share intelligence and coordinate action.


The following tools are accessible to authorized users of I-24/7, INTERPOL’s secure global police communications system:

  • The Human Smuggling and Trafficking (HST) message provides a standardized format for reporting cases of trafficking between member countries and to INTERPOL’s database.
  • Technical solutions known as MIND/FIND enable frontline law enforcement agencies (border police, immigration) to run checks against INTERPOL's database of stolen and lost travel documents and receive an instant response.
  • The International Contact Directory for People Smuggling Issues contains contact details for individuals responsible for people smuggling and illegal migration issues within INTERPOL National Central Bureaus around the world.
  • INTERPOL's Notices and Diffusions system enables global cooperation between its member countries in tracking criminals and suspects, as well as locating missing persons or collecting information. Especially relevant is the Green Notice – through which countries can warn other member states if a known child-sex offender is travelling to their territory or region.
