Border management

Fighting terrorism and transnational crime through effective border management.

Systems

Law enforcement officials at INTERPOL’s National Central Bureaus are connected to each other and to INTERPOL databases through the I-24/7 secure global police communications system.

Technical solutions extend access to INTERPOL databases to frontline law enforcement officers at airports, sea ports and land border crossings. Interoperability with existing national border security systems ensures efficiency and ease of use.

With access to INTERPOL databases, border officers can screen people, goods, vehicles and vessels against millions of records contributed by member countries across the world.

Operational databases for first-line checks

  • Stolen and Lost Travel Document database (SLTD) including those reported as stolen in blank or revoked.
  • Notices – INTERPOL’s colour-coded system of international alerts or requests for cooperation; Nominal data– personal data and the criminal history of individuals subject to a request for cooperation;
  • Travel Documents Associated with Notices; 
  • Stolen Motor Vehicles and identifiable spare parts;
  • Stolen Vessels and engines;
  • iARMS – illicit firearms.

 Forensic databases for second-line checks

  • Edison – Examples of genuine travel documents, to help identify fakes;
  • Dial-Doc – National alerts on recently detected forms of document counterfeiting;
  • Fingerprints;
  • DNA profiles;
  • IBIN – ballistic data.
