Organized crime

Definitions of what constitutes organized crime vary widely from country to country. Organized networks are typically involved in many different types of criminal activity spanning several countries.

These activities may include trafficking in humans, illicit goods, weapons and drugs, armed robbery, counterfeiting and money laundering. Indeed, almost all the crimes areas that we tackle at INTERPOL have an organized aspect.

In this section we focus on three projects that were set up in response to very particular types of criminal network, each of which comes with its unique set of challenges.

These projects facilitate cooperation among our member countries and stimulate the exchange of information between all national and international enforcement bodies concerned with countering these problems.

Our aims within these projects are to:

  • Provide professional and technical expertise;
  • Collect, analyse and disseminate relevant police data;
  • Coordinate international investigations;
  • Identify, establish and maintain contact with experts in the field;
  • Publish manuals, handbooks and reports for investigators.

Additionally, we pursue strategic partnerships with other international organizations and institutions active in specific crime areas, and carry out joint projects on an international level.
