Working in partnership
Due to the extent and nature of maritime-related crime, international and cross-sector partnerships are vital in order to prevent, investigate and prosecute these crimes.
We work with the following international organizations.
- African Union;
- Baltic and International Maritime Council;
- European Union;
- International Maritime Organization;
- United Nations.
In addition, we work closely with various military organizations and companies in the private sector.
INTERPOL receives financial and operational support from a diverse range of sources for its Maritime Security Programme. Governments, international organizations and private industry partners all contribute to the fight against maritime piracy, and we would like to acknowledge their invaluable assistance.
