Member countries

We have 196 member countries; together they create a truly global network of police.

INTERPOL has 196 member countries, making us the world's largest police organization. They work together and with the General Secretariat to share data related to police investigations.

Each country hosts an INTERPOL National Central Bureau (NCB), which links national police with our global network. 

Countries come together at our annual General Assembly to decide policy, working methods, finances and activities. In addition, heads of NCB meet annually at a conference to share experiences.
