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.
