We are developing new data services to better support frontline policing and transnational investigations
Criminal data is at the heart of our member countries’ crime-fighting activities. INTERPOL offers a platform for police around the world to share information easily and in a secure way.
I-CORE is a 10-year programme to reinforce INTERPOL’s function as a global police information hub.
Reinforcing global security
Services developed under I-CORE will support progress towards our seven Global Policing Goals, aligned with the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This means our member countries will be better able to:
- Prevent terrorism
- Secure their borders
- Protect their citizens, especially vulnerable communities
- Make cyberspace safer for businesses and infrastructure
- Counter corruption
- Dismantle trafficking networks
- Support environmental security.
These new services will make a tangible difference in crisis management situations, such as responding to the policing challenges associated with the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. The impact will be particularly positive in countries that lack the required services and cannot develop them on their own.
Initiatives to change the face of international policing
With 12 projects in total, the first phase of the Programme (2020-2022) will focus on three initiatives to improve:
- access to biometric data for frontline police
- international case message exchange
- search and exploitation of information
A joint venture
Through technological transformation and proactive policing, I-CORE will help provide the level of safety and stability necessary for economic, social and environmental development. As such, the programme will require significant financial investment. This is why we are calling on partners to help us shape the future.
The threat landscape is evolving all the time: today’s security gaps will widen if we don’t act now
