The number of officers trained in 2020 via the INTERPOL Virtual Academy
To keep pace with the fast-evolving criminal world, police need to continually upgrade their skills, be capable of leveraging the high-tech tools and systems we make available to them and always have the latest data at their fingertips.
Our training and capacity building initiatives cover all areas of crime and all regions of the world. They range from subject matter expertise and INTERPOL tools and services to fostering professionalism, gender equality and sustainability.
Two major initiatives – based on quality standards and best practices – are central to our training activities:
- The INTERPOL Virtual Academy: our digital learning platform
- The INTERPOL Global Academy: our network of regional training partners
We also partner with public and private organizations to tap into their state-of-the art expertise and ensure the relevance of our training so our member countries stay one step ahead of crime.
We have put guidelines, policies and accreditation systems in place to ensure our training meets the highest standards.
We provide effective training on the ground via our extensive network of national and regional bureaus.
Our capacity building projects help police to keep pace with emerging crime trends.
Our digital learning platform provides a wealth of training tools for police.
