14-16 April 2015, Singapore

With technological advancements occurring at an unprecedented scale, the world is now confronted with a host of new border-related crime threats that are increasingly complex and intertwined.

To address the rising demand for technology and capacity building, INTERPOL World – a new concept for an international forum – brought together the private and public sectors to address the challenges facing the global policing industry.

The first INTERPOL World was held in Singapore from 14 to 16 April 2015, alongside the official opening of the INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI). It served as a catalyst to identify, develop and drive security initiatives for real world security situations across four key domains, but not limited to:

  • cybersecurity
  • safe cities
  • border management
  • supply chain security.

Key facts and figures
