Border management

Fighting terrorism and transnational crime through effective border management.

Background

In our increasingly globalized world, it is easier than ever before for people and goods to cross international borders.

This is also the case for criminals. 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 cargos of illicit goods and desperate migrants.

Effective border security is an essential part of combating transnational crime.

INTERPOL offers a range of tools and services which can help its member countries to enhance their own border-security procedures, and to integrate their efforts with those of their neighbours.

INTERPOL Integrated Border Management Task Force

The Integrated Border Management Task Force (IBMTF) is the central point of contact and coordination for international border-security activities at INTERPOL.

The Task Force supports law enforcement officers working at the frontline of border security by:

  • providing them with access to INTERPOL tools and services,
  • delivering capacity building and training courses,
  • coordinating operational activities.

The Task Force draws upon expertise across departments within INTERPOL as well as from international partners.
