INTERPOL Belmopan

Part of the Joint Intelligence Cordinating Centre, the INTERPOL National Central Bureau (NCB) for Belize is located at the BPD headquarters in Belmopan City. 

Its three staff members are in charge of:

  • Supervising daily operations;
  • Exchanging information with the INTERPOL community;
  • Sharing INTERPOL information with Belize law enforcement agencies;
  • Liaison with member countries and the Financial Investigation Unit for investigations into companies suspected of engaging in fraud, tax evasion and money laundering;
  • Security of the I-24/7 network;
  • Publication of notices and coordination of action required by member countries in relation to INTERPOL notices;
  • Updating the INTERPOL databases with crime data relating to Belize;
  • Helping Belize fight trafficking in stolen motor vehicles.

Looking to the future: The NCB plans to expand access to INTERPOL databases to national law enforcement agencies. This will help secure the territory of Belize, enable border police to determine if travellers are potential threats, and provide first-class police services to domestic colleagues.
