Gestión de fronteras

Fighting terrorism and transnational crime through effective border management.

Operations

With the cooperation of international partners, INTERPOL coordinates and supports border-security operations with the aim of disrupting criminals who seek to cross borders using fraudulent documents to conceal their true identity.

This is done by extending permanent or temporary access to INTERPOL’s databases to airports, sea and land borders, and by drawing on INTERPOL’s expertise in forensics, specialized training and investigative skills.

General border security

The Smuggling Training Operation Programme (STOP) targets people smuggling, illegal immigration, and cross-border movements of criminals.

The programme pairs screening operations at major but vulnerable air, sea, and land borders with training of local officers in the use of INTERPOL databases and border control skills.

Border security against specialized crime areas

A number of targeted operations and exercises are carried out against specific crimes, including:

  • terrorism;
  • trafficking in drugs, firearms, illicit goods, stolen motor vehicles and stolen vessels;
  • trafficking in chemical, explosive, nuclear, biological and radiological materials.

Border security for major events

INTERPOL Major Event Support Teams (IMESTs) are deployed to assist member countries in the preparation, coordination and implementation of security for high-profile events such as sports matches or political summits.

The Border Management programme supports these activities not only in the host country but also in neighbouring or partner countries, helping to establish wider border security capabilities in the region.
