Capacity building projects

Our capacity building projects help police to keep pace with emerging crime trends.

What we do

INTERPOL steers a range of initiatives designed to bridge the gap between national and international policing and help law enforcement agencies make maximum use of the varied services we provide.

Our global perspective allows us to balance highly specific training on particular subjects with a more cross-cutting approach designed to foster professionalism and sustainability. Courses are overseen by INTERPOL Training Quality Assurance to ensure they systematically meet our standards of excellence.

Putting skills into practice

Where relevant, our courses culminate in field training operations. This enables participants to put into practice the skills they have acquired in a controlled “real-world’ environment and to appreciate their practical value in day-to-day activities.

Support from partners

Partnerships with external stakeholders are key if the law enforcement community as well as judicial and governmental authorities are to benefit from the skills and knowledge they need to combat transnational crime.

Currently, INTERPOL is running eight externally funded projects; Adwenpa is funded by Germany’s Foreign Office, EU-ASEAN by the European Union, and the other projects are funded by the Canadian government.
