Burundi

Each of INTERPOL’s member countries operates a National Central Bureau (NCB) which serves as the national platform for cooperation between domestic law enforcement units and the international police community.

The NCB is typically a division of the national police force or investigation service and serves as the unique contact point for INTERPOL action.

NCBs are staffed by highly trained officials recruited from national law enforcement agencies. Their job is to feed INTERPOL criminal databases and work with other member countries on cross-border investigations, operations and arrests.

The NCB is the designated contact point for the INTERPOL General Secretariat headquarters, its seven regional offices across the world and INTERPOL representative offices at the African Union, European Union and United Nations.
