The Philippine Center on Transnational Crime (PCTC), which houses INTERPOL Manila, is the national law enforcement agency which carries investigations beyond the borders of the Philippines.  Its priority crime areas include:

  • Illicit trafficking of narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances; 
  • Money laundering; 
  • Terrorism; 
  • Arms smuggling; 
  • Trafficking in persons; 
  • Piracy;
  • Any crime which impacts the stability and security of the Philippines.       

The PCTC coordinates all transnational crime operations carried out by other government agencies of the Philippines. It designs new projects to strengthen the country’s combined response and ensures the efficient exchange of information. The PCTC recommends ways to better prevent transnational crime and to detect and apprehend criminals operating across borders. A central database of national and international legislation underpins these recommendations. Activities are reinforced through training programmes delivered in cooperation with national government agencies, other countries and international organizations.  

The PCTC is assisted by the Philippine’s 22 national law enforcement agencies:

Philippine’s 22 national law enforcement agencies
  • Philippine National Police;
  • National Bureau of Investigation;
  • Department of Justice;
  • Anti-Money Laundering Council;
  • Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (Philippine Central Bank);
  • Bureau of Customs;
  • Bureau of Immigration;
  • Bureau of Internal Revenue;
  • Dangerous Drugs Board;
  • Department of Finance;
  • Department of Foreign Affairs;
  • Department of Tourism;
  • Philippine Center on Transnational Crime;
  • Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency;
  • Optical Media Board;
  • Philippine Coast Guard
  • Philippine Overseas Employment Administration;
  • Philippine Ports Authority;
  • Philippine Postal Corporation;
  • Presidential Anti-Organized Crime Commission;
  • Securities and Exchange Commission;
  • Office for Transportation Security.


The National Central Bureau (NCB) for the Philippines is an inter-ministerial entity which is not part of the Philippine National Police but instead is directly attached to the Office of the President. As such it benefits from direct access to the services of all law enforcement agencies in the Philippines. 

The NCB is referred to as “NALECC-SCILEC” (National Law Enforcement Coordinating Committee - Sub Committee on International Law Enforcement Cooperation).

INTERPOL Manila is an integral part of the PCTC. Its mission is to serve as the liaison office and main coordinating body for international police cooperation on behalf of all law enforcement agencies in the Philippines. Its main duties include:

  • Monitoring and coordinating law enforcement activities relating to transnational crimes affecting the Philippines;
  • Operating and maintaining an operations centre to serve as the focal point for international cooperation on transnational crime for all law enforcement agencies in the Philippines;
  • Acting as a NALECC Sub Committee in the monitoring of crime and activities which threaten national security and the economy.

INTERPOL Manila works around the clock and uses English as its main working language.
