Based on principles embodied in its Constitution, there is no single, national police agency in the United States (US). Instead, a decentralized network of nearly 18,000 different agencies enforces criminal laws according to their respective jurisdiction and mission, which may be local, state, federal, or tribal.

At the local and state level, police and sheriff departments perform traditional law enforcement functions, including:

  • crime prevention, detection and investigation;
  • criminal incident response;
  • responding to calls for assistance;
  • patrol;
  • arrest of criminal suspects;
  • warrant implementation;
  • traffic control;
  • accident investigation;
  • drug enforcement;
  • crime prevention education.

At the federal level, more than 65 separate agencies enforce federal laws with a view to:

  • fighting organized crime and terrorist networks;
  • carrying out foreign intelligence operations;
  • investigating financial and cyber offences;
  • tackling child exploitation and trafficking in human beings;
  • combatting drug trafficking;
  • preventing the smuggling of illicit goods;
  • controlling borders and maintaining national security.

Tribal police officers are hired by Native American tribes, which have a constitutional government on Reservations. They work closely with local, state, and federal police agencies.

INTERPOL Washington

Domestic focus - international reach

INTERPOL Washington, the National Central Bureau (NCB) for the United States, is the designated INTERPOL point of contact, acting on behalf of the Attorney General who is the country's chief law enforcement officer.

INTERPOL Washington supports US law enforcement agencies and other INTERPOL member countries who seek assistance in criminal investigations which go beyond national borders. INTERPOL Washington coordinates national law enforcement action and response, ensuring that it is consistent with national interests and law, as well as with INTERPOL policies, procedures, and regulations.

INTERPOL Washington is composed of a multi-sector workforce which includes full-time employees, contractors, and personnel seconded from more than 25 local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies. The staff includes senior criminal investigators, analysts, attorneys, information technology specialists and administrative support personnel.

Structure

At the core of INTERPOL Washington’s criminal investigative support activities is the Operations and Command Center (IOCC). It provides a permanent communications interface between domestic and international law enforcement partners, as well as support to its operational divisions, namely:

  • Alien / Fugitive Division;
  • Counterterrorism Division;
  • Drugs Division;
  • Economic Crimes Division;
  • Human Trafficking and Child Protection Division;
  • State and Local Liaison Division;
  • Violent Crimes Division.

Strategic Goals

INTERPOL Washington has developed four strategic goals to promote cooperation and support to its national law enforcement community and foreign counterparts:

  • Combat transnational crime and terrorism;
  • Strengthen the security of US borders;
  • Facilitate international law enforcement cooperation and partnerships;
  • Cultivate and develop US workforce, management, and operations.

These goals are in keeping with the strategic priorities of the US Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security, and INTERPOL. They reflect the investigative interests of partner law enforcement agencies, and provide the framework for international investigative assistance that is critical to preventing and solving transnational crime.
