Each of INTERPOL’s 190 member countries operates a National Central Bureau (NCB) which serves as the national platform for cooperation between domestic law enforcement units and the international police community.  

The NCB is typically a division of the national police force or investigation service and serves as the unique contact point for INTERPOL action.  

NCBs are staffed by highly trained officials recruited from domestic law enforcement agencies. Their job is to feed INTERPOL criminal databases and work with other member countries on cross-border investigations, operations and arrests.

The NCB is the designated contact point for the INTERPOL General Secretariat headquarters, its seven regional offices across the world and representative offices at the United Nations and European Union.
