All INTERPOL member countries are connected through a secure communications system known as I-24/7. This gives police real-time access to criminal databases containing millions of records. Our unique system of Notices is used to alert member countries to fugitives, dangerous criminals, missing persons or weapons threats.
Our Command and Coordination Centre is operational around the clock and serves as the first point of contact for any member country faced with a crisis situation. We can deploy specialized response teams to the scene of a serious crime or disaster or to assist with security preparations for a major international event.
Forensic experts provide targeted support to member countries in the areas of fingerprint, DNA analysis and Disaster Victim Identification. Criminal intelligence analysts monitor and analyse information related to specific areas of crime and criminal organizations, and inform member countries about evolving trends and patterns.
We are committed to building the capacity of police around the world through training sessions and our online learning centre. Our training portfolio ranges from practical courses in specific crime areas and investigative techniques for frontline officers, to high-level management programmes for senior police staff.
