Border management

Fighting terrorism and transnational crime through effective border management.


In our increasingly globalized world, it is easier than ever before for people and goods to cross air, land, and sea borders. This is also the case for criminals and terrorists. Young men and women travel to conflict zones to join terrorist groups, while child sex offenders travel from their home countries to exploit victims overseas. Smugglers and traffickers take advantage of this increasing flow across borders to hide their cargo of illicit goods and desperate migrants. Fugitives travel internationally to escape justice. Effective border security is an essential part of combating transnational crime.

Integrated Border Management Task Force (IBMTF)

The Integrated Border Management Task Force (IBMTF) is the central point of contact within the INTERPOL General Secretariat for coordination of international border security activities, offering assistance to member countries to enhance their own border security and integrate their efforts with those of their neighbors and international community. IBMTF draws upon expertise across departments within INTERPOL as well as from international partners to accomplish its primary goals of improving border security around the world.

IBMTF supports law enforcement officers working at the frontline of border security by:

  • Running operations at air, land, and sea border points during which it provides access to INTERPOL databases that are not regularly available and focusing enforcement efforts on certain crime areas.
  • Delivering capacity building training courses related to crime areas often seen at border points.
  • Improving worldwide border management policy through direct and indirect partnership with member countries and international organizations.
