International partners

Private partners

At INTERPOL, we form partnerships with private entities to help fulfil our vision of connecting police for a safer world. 

These partnerships include working with private industry as well as non-profit entities such as non-governmental organizations and foundations.  Contributions from partners can be both monetary or in-kind.   

Mutual benefits

By working with private entities, INTERPOL can benefit from access to expertise, technology and other resources that are not readily available in the public sector. 

Private entities offer a dynamic insight into new technologies and solutions that INTERPOL can use for the benefit of our member countries and the law enforcement community. For example, technologies in the areas of ballistics, biometric identification and cybersecurity, among many others.

Benefits for the business community include access to a global network of key stakeholders in law enforcement and greater visibility of their contribution towards a safer world.

In-kind contributions

Contributions from private sector partners are not necessarily in the form of funding. They also encompass the secondment of staff, licensing of software, the use of equipment and buildings, and other in-kind donations.

Due diligence process

Certain safeguards are in place to ensure that contributions (financial or otherwise) from the private sector are managed appropriately.

A due diligence process is carried out for all potential partners from the private sector, while the procedure for accepting contributions is governed by INTERPOL legal regulations. 

The due diligence process seeks to ensure that:

  • The partner or potential partner shares the same fundamental values and principles as INTERPOL;
  • The partner’s activities are compatible with the principles, aims and activities of INTERPOL;
  • The origin of the contribution is neither financially nor legally flawed;
  • The contribution is intended for purposes compatible with the principles, aims and activities of INTERPOL.
