Heads of INTERPOL and Italian police discuss global security

ROME, Italy – INTERPOL Secretary General Jürgen Stock met with Franco Gabrielli, Chief of the Italian Police and Director General of Public Security to discuss global security issues including organized crime and terrorism.

Border security was a key issue on the agenda, particularly in relation to migrant smuggling and security threats to the Southern Mediterranean area.

Italy’s provision of access to INTERPOL’s global databases to frontline officers has seen a significant growth in the number of checks made on a daily basis, making Italy amongst the highest performers globally.

Following the G7 Taormina encouraging the increased use of INTERPOL for counter-terrorism information sharing, Mr Stock and Prefect Gabrielli also discussed ways in which this can be implemented.
