Romania celebrates 45th anniversary as INTERPOL member country

The INTERPOL National Central Bureau (NCB) in Bucharest celebrated its 45th anniversary in the Romanian capital on 10 January.

Joining the world's largest police organization on 10 January 1973, Romania has since enjoyed more than four decades of active international police cooperation.

Through its extensive use of INTERPOL’s global policing tools and capabilities, Romania is one of today’s most frequent users of INTERPOL databases, and has become a key player on the European policing landscape.

"We are proud to mark 45 years of our membership of INTERPOL, and of the contribution made by Romania to international police cooperation during these years," said Lacramioara Petrescu,
Head of NCB INTERPOL Bucharest.

INTERPOL Bucharest is Romania’s national platform for operational information exchange between national law enforcement and the INTERPOL law enforcement community at large. Cooperation with countries in all continents leads regularly to the arrest of internationally wanted fugitives and to the location and return of stolen works of art.

To strengthen national security, INTERPOL Bucharest has given police across the country instant and automated access to INTERPOL’s global databases, enabling them to obtain critical data on wanted persons, vehicles and stolen and lost travel documents in just seconds.
