Boosting border security

To strengthen national security and prevent criminal activity in Ukraine, INTERPOL Kiev and the State Border Guard Service arranged for frontline border officers nationwide to have access to INTERPOL’s databases. Now, all state border guard officers have hands-on access to INTERPOL databases, meaning that they can quickly determine if a person is a potential threat to national security.

INTERPOL training centre

In collaboration with the General Secretariat, in 2008 INTERPOL Kiev set up a training centre for INTERPOL's secure police communications system at the Kiev National University of Internal Affairs. This training centre provides a venue for Ukrainian police to continually improve their international policing skills and keep abreast of new tools and services provided by the INTERPOL General Secretariat.
